About this title


After years of frustrating fertility problems, Ellen and Eric Sommers are delighted when they find out they are expecting their first child. Their friends and family share their joy, but a stranger also revels in the news. Frank Mallory has suffered his own frustrations in his attempts to become a family man and believes his destiny is to create a family by whatever means necessary, including murder.

Frank's maniacal fantasy unfolds as he kidnaps Ellen and plots Eric's demise by framing him for Ellen's murder. Using blood and hair he extracts from his kidnap victim, Frank creates a trail of evidence that lead police to Ellen's husband. The District Attorney's office follows suit and indicts Eric for his wife's murder. Frank meanwhile secrets Ellen and her unborn child to his utopian existence - a cabin deep in the remote lake region of British Columbia. It is a race against time as Eric is on trial murder and Frank's fantasy becomes Ellen's new reality.
