ALONE… Massachusetts State Trooper Bobby Dodge watches a tense hostage standoff unfold through the scope of his sniper rifle. Just across the street, in wealthy Back Bay, Boston, an armed man has barricaded himself with his wife and child. The man’s finger tightens on the trigger and Dodge has only a split second to react…and do his job, to kill a man.
ALONE… that’s where the nightmare began for cool, beautiful, and dangerously sexy Catherine Rose Gagnon. Twenty-five years ago, she endured a month-long nightmare of abduction and abuse. Now her husband has just been killed. Her powerful and politically-connected father-in-law blames Catherine for his son’s death…and for the unexplained illnesses that have sent her own young son repeatedly to the hospital.
ALONE… a madman survived solitary confinement in a maximum security prison where he’d done hard time for the most sadistic of crimes. Now he walks the streets a free man, invisible, anonymous…and filled with an unquenchable rage for vengeance. What brings them together is a moment of violence-but what connects them is a passion far deeper and much more dangerous. For someone has woven such an intricate web of evil, wherein no one is above suspicion, no one is beyond harm, and no one will see death coming until it finds them…alone.
