You can't run away from danger when you can't hear it coming for you...
New York Times bestselling author Karen Rose returns with a new thriller in her chilling Cincinnati series.
Michael Rowland is not your typical teenager. He's always looked out for his five-year-old brother Joshua, and he's deaf. When his stepfather comes after Joshua, Michael takes him and runs. He's determined to protect his brother at all costs - even if that means making himself vulnerable to a danger he can't hear coming. And the danger gets worse when Michael witnesses a stranger kill his stepfather.
Desperate and afraid, the boys have nowhere to go but to Joshua's soccer coach, journalist and ex- Army ranger, Diesel Kennedy. When Diesel sees Michael is wounded, he takes them to see Doctor Dani Novak, not only because she can sign with the deaf, but because he's drawn to her and everything she stands for. She never refuses his requests because she feels the connection, as well, but resists for a reason she feels she can never confess.
When Dani learns that Michael saw the face of his stepfather's killer, she and Diesel know they have to figure out who the mysterious murderer actually is. They quickly learn that they may have a serial killer on their hands--and all signs point to Michael as the next target.
