Kassandra Lambabout this book: Two things inspired me to write this particular story as part of my Kate Huntington mystery series. I lived most of my adult life near Washington, D.C. and rubbed elbows with employees of the State Department and various intelligence agencies. Obviously they never revealed any state secrets to me but I did get a sense of what their lives were like. Some of them had to make some tough choices at times between serving their country or being there for their families.
That planted the "what-if" seed of an ex-CIA undercover operative turned family man whose past comes back to haunt him. And since many of my in-real-life psychotherapy clients came back for the occasional session to sort out some new life challenge, it made sense to have this fictional ex-spy be a former client of Kate's.
Which brings me to the second inspiration. Telling Miller Dawson's back story gave me an opportunity to honor all my clients who worked so hard in therapy to overcome their pasts and transform themselves and their lives.
Miller recognizes a man at a party–someone he knew in the past by a different name and under very different circumstances. He reaches out to his former therapist as a sounding board to help him make a tough decision. He thought he had sufficiently covered his tracks, but he unwittingly makes Kate and everyone close to her the targets of a ruthless killer.
