A young woman gets much more than she bargained for when she awakes to find herself standing on the ice-covered railing of a bridge, wearing only jeans and a tee shirt.
Terrified, Jessie O’Connell has no idea how she got there—but this isn’t her first blackout.
One wrong turn after another has F.B.I. Special Agent Jason Mackenzie lost on a vacation he’d rather not be taking. When he sees the young woman tumble from the bridge into the frigid waters below, saving her life sets off a chain of events neither of them could have ever expected.
A power-hungry U.S. Senator. A country sheriff with a dark past. With her childhood a blur of repressed memories—from a mental hospital and dark family deceit—Jessie and her F.B.I. protector are now on the run, trying to unravel a decades-old mystery. Somehow hoping to salvage his career—and save their lives—with time running out, the police and F.B.I. closing in, and a killer desperate to stop them, Jessie and Jason keep pushing until the only way out. . . is down.
“This is as fine a debut thriller as I’ve seen in a long time,” said Kathie McGuire, director of Brighton Publishing. “The psychological suspense never lets up. You really experience the anguish the characters are feeling all the way to a climax readers won’t soon forget.”
Penelope S. Childs is a lifelong writer who finds much of her inspiration in music. She and her husband, Dennis, live in Michigan with their five horses, four dogs, and a flock of chickens. “Say You’ll Haunt Me” is her first novel.
