Gina Royal is the definition of averageâ€”a shy Midwestern housewife with a happy marriage and two adorable children. But when a car accident reveals her husbandâ€™s secret life as a serial killer, she must remake herself as Gwen Proctorâ€”the ultimate warrior mom.
With her ex now in prison, Gwen has finally found refuge in a new home on remote Stillhouse Lake. Though still the target of stalkers and Internet trolls who think she had something to do with her husbandâ€™s crimes, Gwen dares to think her kids can finally grow up in peace.
But just when sheâ€™s starting to feel at ease in her new identity, a body turns up in the lakeâ€”and threatening letters start arriving from an all-too-familiar address. Gwen Proctor must keep friends close and enemies at bay to avoid being exposedâ€”or watch her kids fall victim to a killer who takes pleasure in tormenting her. One thing is certain: sheâ€™s learned how to fight evil. And sheâ€™ll never stop.
