Dying Breath

Dying Breath by Wendy Corsi Staub ~~ It's summer on the Jersey Shore. Children play on the beach. Husbands are off working in the city. And the surf echoes in the night. Here, in this perfect place, a serial killer has no worries in the world-except choosing the next victim.
Cam Hastings has come to Long Beach Island with her teenage daughter and the hope that maybe she can save her failed marriage. Cam has never stopped loving her husband Mike nor has she been able to outrun her flaws and demons-a vanished mother, a lost sister, and the ugly visions she has of missing children.
Now, Cam is about to step over the edge. For once, she will act on one of her visions-and then face the consequences. For a killer has just struck again. And for Cam, and the people she loves most, fear has come home for good.
Years ago Cam starts having ugly visions - usually those of a child being murdered - before they happen. Unfortunately there is nothing she can do to warn these children - and save their lives. For a while the visions seem to stop - until Cam becomes pregant again. This time she fears for her own daughters life because children who look just like her are disappearing. This is one ending you won't see coming. Looking back, there are a few subtle hints that no make sense, but you're too busy wanting to see how it ends to pick up on them until you're done reading. Another book featuring one of the characters in this book is coming out later this year/early next year - Dying Light. A
