General Note
"This is a Borzoi book." -- title page verso.
"A psychological thriller about trauma, power, and survival, which follows a young woman who has been captured and confined by a serial killer--who is a father, widower, former Marine, and lineman for the local electric company--as he hides the true nature of his double life from his daughter, neighbors, and the local bartender who could be his next victim, unless his captive manages to stop him"--,Provided by publisher.
Aidan Thomas is a hard-working family man in the small upstate New York town where he lives. He's the kind of man who always lends a hand and has a good word for everyone. There's one secret he's been keeping from everyone: he is a kidnapper and serial killer. Aidan has murdered eight women and there's a ninth he has earmarked for death: Rachel, imprisoned in a backyard shed. When his wife dies, Aidan and his daughter Cecilia are forced to move. He brings Rachel along, introducing her to Cecilia as a "family friend," betting that after five years of captivity she will be too brainwashed and fearful to attempt to escape. As Rachel tests the boundaries of her new living situation, she begins to form a tenuous connection with Cecilia, - adapted from jacket
