Availability: In Stock

Seattle Police forensic psychologist Daphne Matthews, who volunteers as a teenage runaway counselor, is haunted by the loss of a suicide, a jumper, from a year earlier. When a womans body is found beneath the Aurora Bridge, Matthews is one of the first at the scene and begins a puzzling investigation that is entangled with the pasts of Matthews, the victim, and even Seattle itself. Mary-Anns boyfriend has a record of physical abuse, and an attitude that Matthews finds difficult to crack. When the victims grieving brother surfaces, throwing blame onto the boyfriend and craving revenge, Matthews gains an unstable ally she does not want. Then the stalking begins: the eerie phone calls, the noises outside the house, the shadows that move in the night. Someone has their eye on Matthews - but to stop her, kill her, or to help her solve the crime? While her colleagues, police lieutenant Lou Boldt and sergeant John LaMoia, pursue a hotel room peeper in the hope of solving a series of disappearances, the police and Matthews are led into the Underground - a perfectly preserved city-under-a-city, hidden beneath present-day Seattle. Faced with the stalking that is wearing her down and terrifying her, Matthews engages in a mental game of cat-and-mouse, never knowing whom she can trust. She knows that she is caught up in something that could kill her if she cant solve the homicide. Criss-crossing Seattle, diving below the streets to ancient tunnels, running for her life, Matthews must unlock the psychological secrets behind Mary-Anns death, before she herself is buried alongside her. Matthews very survival will depend on her skills at the art of deception.
