Backcover: Two years ago, Jeff Hart was kidnapped at knifepoint.
Jeff feels shell-shocked when his kidnapper suddenly releases him to return home to his old life. When he finds his family, he just can’t fit in. After struggling to survive for such a long time, Jeff feels detached, isolated from other people, especially those he loves. He finds himself unable to talk about his experiences, and the more questions people ask, the worse things get. No one will ever understand how horribly Jeff was treated and why he behaved as he did - not his friends, not his family, and not the FBI agent who worked on the case. Jeff isn’t the same person he was two years ago, and he knows he never will be again.
