IT BEGAN WITH THE MISSING WEEK OF HER LIFE....
Found in an alleyway, completely dazed, with no memory of who she is, or how she's gotten there, an obviously well-to-do young woman is taken to a nearby shelter run by a nun. There she meets former cop Michael Coffey, who often stops in to visit Sister Mary Agnes. When it becomes obvious that she is suffering from sudden, agonizing, recurring headaches, Coffey volunteers to take her to the nearest ER. But, haunted by an elusive memory she has of a motel, she insists that he drive her to the location first. There they discover a brutally murdered man in the room, and blood-splattered clothing that would certainly fit the young woman.
Is she a cold-blooded killer, or has someone set her up?
Instead of turning her in to the police, Coffey takes his mystery woman back to his house. And even when she disappears from there without a word, he is positive she's innocent, and remains determined to help her. But the truth which his investigation gradually reveals is so shocking that it will be almost impossible to prove. For the real criminal is someone she trusts implicitly, someone who is about to wreak the ultimate revenge—someone who has tampered not only with the truth but with this innocent victim's very mind!
