In order to escape her abusive husband, Caroline Stewart fakes her and her son's death in order to establish a new life in a university town far away. Nine years pass and she falls in love, but her sunken car is retrieved and her husband sets out on a mission of vengeance to find her.
Karen Rose was introduced to suspense and horror at the tender age of eight when she accidentally read Poe's 'The Pit and The Pendulum' and was afraid to go to sleep for years. She now enjoys writing books that make other people afraid to go to sleep.
Karen lives in Florida with her husband of twenty years and their children. When she's not writing, she enjoys travelling, karate and, though not a popular Florida pastime, skiing.
