Haunted by a past she can't remember ...

When criminal psychologist Dr Kate Pearson was twelve years old she was abducted, but she has no memory of the time she was held.

Over twenty years later, an anonymous note is pushed under her door ...

I REMEMBER YOU, KATE.

And suddenly Kate's distant past becomes her present.

When Kate discovers that her parents lied to her about the length of time she was missing, she is forced to question everything about her childhood.

Could the suspected suicide of an ex-headmaster in Dublin and a brutal murder in New York be connected to her abduction all those years ago? And was her father involved?

While Kate delves deeper into the recesses of her memory to uncover the truth, a murderous cult leader is bearing down on her.

THE GAME CHANGER is out for revenge. Someone has to pay for the sins of the past.
