“With his latest, Malfi explores how grief and longing fan the flames of obsession as a man uncovers his dead wife’s horrifying secrets.”
When his wife Allison is killed, Aaron Decker’s life changes forever. Deeply haunted by her absence, and her ghost, he begins to finally go through her belongings. Finding a receipt for a hotel room all the way across the country, Aaron must follow the end of that trail. Fueled by grief and curiosity, he decides to find out exactly what Allison was doing before her death.
Aaron is completely unprepared to discover Allison’s secrets. So much death, so much horror. As he reveals each dark secret, Aaron is consumed with his obsession. He must know the truth about the woman he loves, even if it kills him.
