Jane Campbell avoids confrontation at all costs. Given the choice, she'll always let her husband, Leon-a bestselling thriller author-fight their battles. She'd prefer to focus on the good things in life: precious days with her two young children, a steady and loving marriage, their mischievously playful cat Bonita, and her fulfilling job as a creative-writing teacher. In Jane's eyes, life is altogether sweeter than any individual bump in the road. But when Leon suffers a brutal attack, Jane has to finally face reality. Who would commit such a hateful offense? Leon has imagined his fair share of crime on the page, and now unthinkable violence has landed on the Campbell family doorstep. With her husband in a coma, Jane must open her eyes to the problems and secrets in her life. Although she might not like what she sees, if she's committed to discovering who hurt her husband-and why-she needs to take matters into her own hands.
