"Exciting and chilling"
He is credited with strangling to death over one hundred
women and then having sex with them postmortem. His crimes
not only impacted the victims themselves but the victim's
families, his lawyer and his girlfriend who was the state's
star witness during his trial. On the anniversary of his
death five years after Steven Gage was executed by the
state of Tennessee, three women receive a note
saying "Happy Anniversary, I haven't forgotten you!"
When Callie Thayer receives the note, she immediately knows
what it means and is afraid that her new life in Merritt,
Massachusetts will be destroyed when the truth comes out.
Melanie White, once Steven's lawyer and now practicing in
New York City doesn't make the connection until Carrie
calls her asking for help. True Crime writer Dianne
Massey, whose book about Steven skyrocketed her to fame
doesn't take the note seriously. By the time the dust
settles one will die, one will be severely injured and the
last will fight for her life against a killer who is
determined to have his vengeance.
Every once in a while, a book come along that is so
exciting and chilling that the reader instinctively knows
it will become a bestseller. THE ANNIVERSARY is such a
book with its speed of light pacing and its action packed
plot focusing on three females in peril. Try as one might,
nobody will guess the identity of the killer until the
author chooses to reveal the identity.
