From the bestselling author of The Killing Kind, a woman shares her story of survival after a man holds her captive at gunpoint.
By the time Anne Bridges saw the gun in Jimmy Williams's hand, it was already too late. The bad things she had heard about him—how he had drugged a woman and held her hostage—Anne now realized were true. Only now it was her turn.
What began as a well-intentioned attempt to reconnect with an old friend became, for Anne, a struggle to survive. In her own words Anne shares a chilling minute-by-minute account of her ordeal—the shotgun blast that nearly ended her life, her desperate struggle to escape, and the courage that sustained her on her long road to recovery—as part of a compelling narrative by award-winning, New York Times bestselling author M. William Phelps. She is telling her story in hopes that other women will not have to go through what she endured at the hands of a violent attacker.
