Hoping to start over, Lauren and Leah move to a small town where no one knows what happened to them. As soon as they arrive, the unimaginable happens: Lauren sees the man who killed her daughter. At least, he’s the man she believes is the killer. She doesn’t have any proof, and the local police can’t act on her hunches. Adding to her panic is the fact that Leah is about to turn 16 — the same age as her other daughter when she was murdered. Is the killer back to take Leah, too?
