It all began on Grist Mill Road . . .
Matthew and Hannah were just playing in the woods, a little way from home.
But now he's tying Hannah to a tree. And she has never been so terrified.
Patrick is there too, hidden, watching. He can't move.
He can't take his eyes off Matthew's gun.
Years later, in New York City, leading adult lives they never would have imagined, the three will meet again. With even more devastating consequences.
