This suspenseful novel has such a plot twist, there's no way to foretell the climax. I seldom read books more than once; this is an exception. ( )
  BonitaMartin | Jun 25, 2016 |
Liz Barwick is married to Baker Reynolds, pro-football player for the Atlanta Bobcats. She narrowly escapes with her life after being beaten and raped by her husband. She contacts a lawyer and gets a divorce. She accepts an assignment to go to Cumberland Island and photograph the island for her publisher who wants to write a book about the island. As she begins to feel safer on the secluded island, she learns that first her lawyer, then her publisher and his wife have been murdered. Liz knows all to well that her ex-husband is now looking for her again.

The book is not without some suspense but also has a great deal of predictablitiy to it as well. The only compelling character in the book is Cumberland Island itself. ( )
