“I whisper the word, and my soul feels as light as air… Revenge.”
Lakin Hale, true crime writer and victim of an attack that left her for dead, has written numerous bestsellers under an assumed identity, helping crime solvers and victims close cold cases, yet there is one crime she hasn’t been able to solve:
As she embarks on a new case, working closely with local authorities, the details of the recent murder begin to eerily resemble the event that nearly ended her life. A silhouette of a man haunts her dreams, but there were only two people there that night—Lakin and her murderer. Is her phantom hero who pulled her from the water real, or is he a devil sent to torment her, sparked by her desire for vengeance?
Buried in a watery grave of lotus flowers, the victim calls out to Lakin, unearthing painful memories of what was stolen from her that fateful night. For those that played a part, it’s now time to answer for their sins.
