What you don’t know can kill you.Twenty years ago, Melanie Stokes was abandoned in a Boston hospital, then adopted by a wealthy young couple. Gifted with loving parents, a doting brother and indulgent uncle, Melanie has always considered herself lucky. Until tonight. Tonight, a has-been reporter turns up investigating her past. Tonight, the first note arrives saying, ‘You Get What You Deserve.’ And tonight, Melanie has her first, horrifying vision of the past. Melanie has no memory of her life before the adoption. Now, someone wants to give it back, even if it includes the darkest nightmare the Stokes family ever faced: the murder of their first daughter in Texas. As Melanie pursues every lead, chases every shadow in search of her real identity, two seemingly unrelated events from twenty years ago will come together in a dangerous explosion of truth.
