About this title

Synopsis:

Something else had happened ...Something so terrible that she was too frightened to search her memory for it ...The newspapers reported the case with relish. Jane (Jinx) Kingsley, fashion photographer and heiress, tries to kill herself after being unceremoniously jilted by her fiance, who has since disappeared together with Jinx's best friend Meg Harris ...But when Jinx wakes from her coma, she can remember nothing about her alleged suicide attempt. With the help of Dr Alan Protheroe of the Nightingale Clinic, she slowly begins to piece together the fragments of the last few weeks. Then the memories begin to surface ...memories of utter desperation and absolute terror. 'Violence may well be offered to anyone who tries to part you from this marvellous, dramatically intelligent novel. It shimmers with suspense, ambiguity and a deep, unholy joy' Frances Fyfield, Daily Mail 'Guaranteed to burn the midnight oil' Mike Ripley, Daily Telegraph

Review:

The author of the award-winning novels The Sculptress and The Scold's Bridle weaves a spellbinding tale of suspense and psychological terror. When heiress Jinx Kingsley is found unconscious in the wreckage of a mysterious car accident, the police suspect a suicide attempt. Suffering from amnesia, Jinx is placed in an exclusive private clinic, where she struggles to regain her memory with the help of Dr. Alan Protheroe -- but the memories that begin to surface are terrifying and desperate. A complex, nontraditional British mystery.
