When Lexi wakes up in the Hudson Medical Center, barely in one piece, she is unable to recall how she got there.
Nobody seems to be able to tell her.
Disturbing memories haunt her daylight hours. Nightmares stalk her sleep.
With huge unanswered questions, like where is her Mom - why doesn't she visit? What's happened to her boyfriend Finn - and who is this friend, Julia, who visits her a lot and of whom she has no recollection? Lexi sets out to discover what's happened.
But the more she searches for answers, the deeper and darker the mystery gets.
And as she begins to piece the fragments together, she remembers one thing: I MUST HIDE FROM CHARLIE.
But the question is: who is Charlie? And is he still out there?
A page-turning thriller that will keep you wanting more ...
