Synopsis: Everybody knows about the Cooper Killings – the Bel Air home invasion that rocked the nation.
There was only one survivor - a sixteen year-old girl.
And though the killers were caught they walked free.
Now eighteen, Nic Preston - the girl who survived - is trying hard to rebuild her life. She’s security conscious to the point of paranoia and her only friend is a French Mastiff bulldog, but she’s making progress. She’s started college in New York and has even begun dating.
But then one night her apartment is broken into and the life Nic’s worked so hard to create is shattered in an instant.
Finn Carter - hacker, rule breaker, player – is the last person Nic ever wants to see again. He’s the reason her mother’s killers walked free from court. But as the people hunting her close in, Nic has to accept that her best and possibly only chance of staying alive is by keeping close to Finn and learning to trust the person she’s sworn to hate.
Fleeing across a snowbound New England, frantically trying to uncover the motive behind the murders, Nic and Finn come to realize the conspiracy is bigger than they could ever have suspected. But the closer they get to the truth and the closer they get to each other, the greater the danger becomes.
To survive she has to stay close to him.
To keep her safe he has to keep his distance.
Finn tears off his sweater and T-shirt and I catch a glimpse of his chest – the ridges of muscle contracted hard against the cold, his skin coated in goosebumps – before he wraps a blanket around his shoulders. Seeing me struggling he reaches out to help, his eyes meeting mine briefly before he looks away.
I don’t even pretend to be embarrassed. I’m way beyond feeling anything right now beyond a vague and rapidly fading instinct to stay alive, so I stand there, my legs trembling, and let Finn pull my sweatshirt off over my head and then my camisole top, which is sticking to me like a sheet of wet ice. His fingers are shaking only a little less than mine. When he’s done I’m just standing there in my bra and he turns away, grabs a blanket up off the floor and drapes it around my shoulders.
