Eliza Benedict cherishes her peaceful, ordinary suburban life with her husband and children. But her tranquility is shattered when she receives a letter from the last person she ever expects—or wants—to hear from: Walter Bowman. In the summer of 1985, when she was fifteen, Eliza was kidnapped by Walter and held hostage for almost six weeks. He had killed at least one girl and Eliza always suspected he had other victims as well. Now on Death Row in Virginia for the rape and murder of his final victim, Walter seems to be making a heartfelt act of contrition as his execution nears. Though Eliza wants nothing to do with him, she’s never forgotten that Walter was most unpredictable when ignored. Desperate to shelter her children from this undisclosed trauma of her past, she cautiously makes contact with Walter. Yet as Walter presses her for deeper contact, it becomes clear that he is after something greater than forgiveness. He wants Eliza to remember what really happened that long ago summer. He wants her to save his life. And Eliza, who has worked hard for her comfortable cocooned life, will do anything to protect it—even if it means finally facing the events of that horrifying summer and the terrible truth she’s kept buried inside. An edgy, utterly gripping tale of psychological manipulation that will leave readers racing to the final page, I’d Know You Anywhere is a virtuoso performance that is sure to be Laura Lippman’s biggest hit yet.
