About this title


On the anniversary of her family's death, Terry Allen unwittingly discovers a dead body. From all appearances, a beautiful accountant named Rachel Quinn has taken her own life at Hope Haven, the renovated mansion that Terry's husband Arthur was helping construct when he died. Terry's grade school nemesis, Ed, is the responding officer. Seeing the body, so at peace in death except for the flies that danced on her unblemished face, hits Terry hard. The event stirs conflicting feelings in her; oddly enough one of them is resentment. The suicide note read, "It's all too hard." This unhappy event shakes Terry out of her slump. She realizes that it is time to merge back onto the highway of life. She decides to look for work. Her reinvestment has a price. Will it be too high to pay? Her neighbor at Hope Haven watches Terry's every move. Lloyd's constant cleaning borders on obsessive as he polishes until the back stairs glow, the hall floor gleams. Whenever Terry opens the front door of the building, he is always right there. Is Lloyd a good neighbor or a ticking time bomb? In the days following the suicide, a woman had been appearing in the side yard and looking up at Rachel Quinn's window. Her expression is filled with sadness and her eyes search Hope Haven for an answer. Following the coroner's report, the police start to investigate Rachel Quinn's death as a possible homicide. Terry feels the need to question the stranger who cries and watches the window above. Terry confronts her to find that Alice had been a customer of the dead accountant. Following this discussion, Terry gets a frightening call, "You are not safe." There are questions that should go unanswered and desires unpursued. Hope Haven was created to provide sanctuary for mentally ill and fragile people. Can such a beautiful place also harbor something much darker? As the mystery surrounding Rachel Quinn's untimely death grows, some of Hope Haven's secrets are exposed to light. Sle
