The Pretty Woman Who : A Psychological Thriller About the Danger Next Door. When Miles Peterson was 16, he killed a man in South Florida and was arrested for murder.

Now, Miles’ teachers, classmates, neighbors, and the police all want to know: Is Miles Peterson dangerous? Yes…he is.

But Jennifer is already at the door. “Come on…Mom…how long can this take?”
