Liz Barwick's tranquil life on an island off the Georgia coast turns nightmarish after a tragic secret two decades old is unearthed and her ex-husband, a steroid-crazed NFL star, goes on a murderous rampage. A ``fast-paced, multilevel tale of mystery and revenge,'' said PW. ``In a suspenseful--albeit telegraphed--final encounter, one deadly monster destroys another.'' (Nov.)
