Abbie Devereaux wakes in the dark. She is hooded and bound, with no idea where she is or how she got there. Kept alive by a man she never sees, his only promise is that eventually he will kill her - like the others. But Abbie has spirit and bloody-mindedness on her side. She counts the seconds spent alone and plots her survival. Above all she dreams of returning to normal, careless, everyday life - the land of the living. Grasping at memories, Abbie recalls snatches of her identity, her career, and her disintegrating relationship with her boyfriend. Is there a connection between her real life and the voice in the darkness? And how can she survive in a place where fear becomes madness and the effort to survive seems too much to bear?

Nicci French is also the author of bestselling novels THE MEMORY GAME, THE SAFE HOUSE, KILLING ME SOFTLY, BENEATH THE SKIN and THE RED ROOM.From AudioFile:
Imagine escaping from an ordeal so heinous you couldn't ever have imagined it and having no one believe you. Add an inability to remember the somewhat unsettled days leading up to being kidnapped, and the disbelief of friends and police makes enough sense that you almost begin to doubt yourself. Anne Flosnik's first-person narration is reflective of Abby's disorientation and frustration as the story begins with her being held in a frightening place with no sense of where she is. She clearly presents the gamut of emotions Abby faces as she tries to recreate her history and ensure a safe future. J.E.M. © AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
