Reeve LeClaire is a college student, dammit, not Daryl Wayne Flint’s victim. Not anymore—not when Reeve is finally recovering a life of her own after four years of captivity.
Flint is safely locked up in Olshaker Psychiatric Hospital, where he belongs. He is walking the grounds of the forensic unit, performing his strange but apparently harmless rituals. It seems that he is still suffering the effects of the head injury he suffered in the car crash that freed Reeve seven years ago. Post-concussive syndrome, they call it.
For all that Flint seems like a model patient, he has long been planning his next move. When the moment arrives, he gets clean away from the hospital before the alarm even sounds. And Reeve is shocked out of her new life by her worst nightmare: Her kidnapper has escaped.
Less than 24 hours later, Flint kills someone from his past--and Reeve's blocked memories jolt back into consciousness. As much as she would like to forget him, she knows this criminal better than anyone else. When Flint evades capture, baffling authorities and leaving a bloody trail from the psychiatric lock-up to the forests of Washington state, Reeve suddenly realizes that she is the only one who can stop him.
Reeve is an irresistibly brave and believable heroine in Carla Norton's heart-stopping new thriller about a young woman who learns to fight back. @ goodreads

I won this book in a goodreads first reads give away and I would like to thank the author for an ARC of this book.
This is the first book I have read from this author and it was so good I'm looking forward to reading more. This book is an awesome psychological thriller.
When Reeve was younger she was kidnapped and held captive for four years by a freak pedophile named Daryl Wayne Flint. By pure luck she was found when Flint was driving one day and had her in the trunk of his car. I'm not sure where he was taking her at the time, I may have missed that part. Reeve went through four years of torture and mutilation with this creep and all they do is put him in a mental institution!
A few years later he escapes. He played a psycho in the hospital for years biding his time to escape and he had people outside of the place helping him!! Well one was a child pornographer, but one was his freaking mother! What kind of crazy woman is she!!
Anyway, he escapes and wants to find Reeve again even though she's older he still wants her. I will not give any spoilers as to what all he did to her, but it's horrific! He also tries to grab some other little girls that look like her but he's off his game.
Reeve wants to try to help the police catch him so he doesn't hurt anyone like he hurt her, so she teams up with the retired FBI agent she worked with on her case, Milo. She does a great job, they both do.
The ending is really good and I definately enjoyed this thrill ride trying to find Flint and tie all of these things together. I would recommend it to anyone that loves mystery/thriller books. 4 Stars
