Lisa Unger, New York Times bestselling author of Beautiful Lies, has crafted a thrilling psychological mystery about a woman trying to escape her painful past by pronouncing herself dead, only to have her old life dangerously catch up with her.
On the surface, Annie Powers's life in a wealthy Florida suburb is happy and idyllic. Her husband, Gray, loves her fiercely; they have a beautiful young daughter, Victory. But the bubble surrounding Annie is pierced when she senses that the demons of her past, when she was known as Ophelia March, have resurfaced and, to her horror, are now creeping up on her. Disturbing events—the appearance of a familiar dark figure on the beach, the mysterious murder of her psychologist—trigger strange and confusing memories for Annie, who realizes she has to quickly piece them together before the peace she has found is taken away from her.
