Crime & mystery

A policewoman suffering amnesia must find the truth about her own violent kidnapping - in a thrilling crime debut as smartly gripping as Susie Steiner's Missing Presumed and Belinda Bauer's Snap.

IF YOU CAN'T REMEMBER WHO TRIED TO KILL YOU, HOW WILL YOU FIND THEM?

'A beautifully written debut'

'One hell of a debut.' Heat
'Crime as it should be written...gripping, addictive, a thrill of a ride.' Jo Spain, international bestseller

Waking up, she couldn't remember anything. Who she was. Who had taken her. How to escape.
Detective Abigail Boone has been missing for four days when she is finally found, confused and broken. Suffering retrograde amnesia, she is a stranger to her despairing husband and bewildered son.

Hopelessly lost in her own life, with no leads on her abduction, Boone's only instinct is to revisit the case she was investigating when she vanished: the baffling disappearance of a young woman, Sarah Still.

Defying her family and the police, Boone obsessively follows a deadly trail to the darkest edges of human cruelty. But even if she finds Sarah, will Boone ever be the same again?
