Bellamy Lyston was only 12 years old when her older sister Susan was killed on a stormy Memorial Day. Bellamy's fear of storms is a legacy of the tornado that destroyed the crime scene along with her memory of what really happened during the day's most devastating moments.

Now, 18 years later, Bellamy has written a sensational, bestselling novel based on Susan's murder. Because the book was inspired by the tragic event that still pains her family, she published it under a pseudonym to protect them from unwanted publicity. But when an opportunistic reporter for a tabloid newspaper discovers that the book is based on fact, Bellamy's identity is exposed along with the family scandal.

Moreover, Bellamy becomes the target of an unnamed assailant who either wants the truth about Susan's murder to remain unknown or, even more threatening, is determined to get vengeance for a man wrongfully accused and punished.

In order to identify her stalker, Bellamy must confront the ghosts of her past, including Dent Carter, Susan's wayward and reckless boyfriend -- and an original suspect in the murder case. Dent, with this and other stains on his past, is intent on clearing his name, and he needs Bellamy's sealed memory to do it. But her safeguarded recollections -once unlocked-pose dangers that neither could foresee and puts both their lives in peril.

As Bellamy delves deeper into the mystery surrounding Susan's slaying, she discovers disturbing elements of the crime which call into question the people she holds most dear. Haunted by partial memories, conflicted over her feelings for Dent, but determined to learn the truth, she won't stop until she reveals Susan's killer.

That is, unless Susan's killer strikes her first...

This is another great Sandra Brown book!

Another good book by Sandra Brown. It could do with fewer sexual details...........I would have enjoyed this book as much without the details. She must use the same old script for the sex parts and all her books are the same when describing the intimate details. Getting ho hum and could do without them in my opinion.

Compelling mystery, well written. I could have done without the 'romance scenes', turned a perfectly good mystery into chicklit - and the involved male wasn't appealing at any rate.

Another good book by Ms.Brown.Full of suspense, twists and turns, and sexual tension between Denton and Bellamy-it all makes for an impossible to put down book.

This is one of Sandra Brown's best books yet! I had a hard time putting it down once I started reading it. Gives you a lot of murder suspects and was hard to figure out who the murderer was.
