Margo Scott wakes up one morning and realizes she can’t remember the last month of her life. She goes into work and finds out from the adjoining business owner that she’d supposedly been on a book buying trip in Spain. She does own a book store, but she has no memory of a trip. When a police officer shows up and questions her about a murder, she’s even more frightened, especially since she’s been dreaming about a man’s throat being slashed and blood on her hands. Not only that, but she seems to have the instincts and training of a killer.
Jake Wise works deep undercover for a secret government agency and has been asked to keep an eye on Margo Scott. But he knows no more than that, not even if she is friend or foe. And when his mentor winds up dead he wonders if she is the killer. Posing as a lawyer, he gets close to her and, when things get ugly, actually starts working to help her figure out the truth.
On the run together, and not trusting each other, they slowly begin to put the pieces of her memory back together. But will she be able to live with the truth once it’s revealed? And will Jake be able to put aside his personal feelings for her and bring her to justice if she’s really guilty?
The reader is as much in the dark as the characters about most things so it’s nerve wracking waiting to discover the hidden secrets of her life. Intense action is blended together with chilling suspense to create a book you will not want to put down.
