Every day for Becker Gray is a struggle to keep himself from collapse, and the best way he's discovered to do that is to hide from his past, his guilt, and his pain. He's been known to over think, over drink, and under sleep. His job as a detective in the major crimes division affords him the luxury of keeping his mind off his tragic personal life, being too busy to drink, and making good use of the time he's not sleeping. And this kidnapping case is another great opportunity to avoid his life.That is, until he identifies too much with the victim.Valerie Hardy was terrorized as a child. As a result, her protective parents forced her into an existence of isolation and detachment -- just as Gray had framed his own life. When the man returns after ten years to terrorize Valerie again by abducting her, Gray must figure out what's happened before the kidnapper fulfills his promise to kill her. Yet, in the process, Gray collapses, losing control of himself and, briefly, even reality. Worse, during his lapse of self control, the sadistic kidnapper turns his wicked attention to Gray.

From the Author:

This book was re-released on May 12, 2017 on its fifth anniversary, with major plot changes, editing upgrades, and new cover in preparations for the next upcoming releases in the Becker Gray series.

About the Author:

Chris Wendel is an author of books in the genres of Mystery/Thriller, Business, and Poetry. Though, his primary focus is on writing the Becker Gray series of Mystery/Thriller novels and stories. With the re-issue of his re-imagined debut novel Human After All and multiple Becker stories slated all the way into 2018, Chris is ready for the Gray franchise to grow. Chris is an avid soccer fan, enjoys traveling, cooking, reading, and concerts. He lives in Florida.Chris Wendel is a native of Lakeland, Florida, where the Det. Becker Gray novels are set. Chris began writing fiction in third grade on an old Corona-type mechanical typewriter. By the age of 15 he'd completed his first novel and presented it to his English teacher for feedback. "I'm pleased a boy your age would spend his spare time doing this, but you have a lot of work to do," he said - or something close to that. Set to work, Chris did. He wrote poetry, TV scripts, screenplays, short stories. Comedies, dramas, mysteries, and thrillers. "All horrible, but I learned a lot about writing."
Chris learned storytelling from watching television. Short, cliff-hanging chapters, like 12 minute chunks of TV shows. He loved shows like Magnum, P.I., Wiseguy, ER, NYPD Blue, Cheers, Seinfeld, and Friends - shows "that were as much about the characters as they were the stories and plots."

His pain (and the investigation) spirals out of control when the man who has terrorized Valerie turns his attention to Gray.
