Tess Thorne, a famous mystery writer, faces a long drive home following a book signing engagement. Tess sets out for home, well after dark. On a lonely stretch of New England road, a tire on her car blows out, but when a man in a truck stops, it is not to help her, but to repeatedly assault her and leave her for dead. Tess survives, and she plots a revenge that will bring her face-to-face with another stranger: the one inside herself, capable of fierce violence

ADVISORY: Contains violence and adult language. The depiction of rape and sexual violence is graphic and intense.

According to the National Institute of Justice, “1 out of every 6 American women has been the victim of an attempted or completed rape in her lifetime."
