From #1 New York Times bestselling author Lisa Jackson comes the suspense fueled tale of an actress caught in the spotlight of a killer’s most chilling obsession… Jenna Hughes had received twisted fan mail before—it was one of the reasons she’d moved herself and her two daughters from Hollywood to rural Oregon. But the letters arriving at her isolated farm are different, disturbingly personal—and coming from somewhere far too close for comfort. And when a dead woman is found in the woods nearby, Jenna fears that bringing her family here was a terrible mistake. Because each snowfall brings another missing woman—each of whom bears a striking resemblance to Jenna… “The crisp, skillful language infuses every sentence with suspense…this chilling novel about the high price of fame will keep readers riveted.”--Publishers Weekly
