"Dana Nolan was a promising young TV reporter until she was kidnapped by a notorious serial killer. A year has passed since she defeated her attacker, but Dana is still physically, emotionally, and psychologically scarred by her ordeal, with aftereffects including PTSD and memory loss. In an attempt to put herself back together after surviving the unthinkable, Dana returns to her hometown. But it doesn't provide the comfort she expects: She struggles to recognize family and childhood friends and begins experiencing dark flashbacks--but she's not sure if they're truly memories or side effects of her brain injury. Dana decides to use her investigative skills to piece together her past and learns of the event that made her become a reporter in the first place: the disappearance of her best friend, Casey Grant, the summer after high school graduation. Looking at her past and the unsolved mystery through the dark filter of PTSD, old friends seem to be suspects, authority figures part of a cover-up. Dana begins to question everything she knows. What is real? What is imagined? Are we defined by what happens to us? And is the truth really something too terrible to be believed?" -- from author's web page.

I am glad that I borrowed this book from the library instead of purchasing it. I could not finish the book. The characters were shallow & trite, and the writing was poor (way too many trivial "like" similes).

Excellent read. I guessed the real killer quickly but there was enough intrigue & red herrings to make me question my decision at several points during the story.
The characters become very real & complex.
Well, well worth the read!

no shortage of drama in this book. It was a quite a bit far fetched but I still had difficulty putting it down. I liked it.

Dark, fast paced, complex characters. A bit predictable but still a good read.

I normally don't read mystery fiction, however, I needed something to read and Tami Hoag's name was familiar.
I really liked this book, at least it kept me engrossed and coming back for more - to finish it to see "who done it"!
Good read! I plan to read more of this author!

Dana Nolan has survived a terrible ordeal and is working her way back to "normal". She becomes involved in what actually happened when her best friend disappeared. Is she prepared for the answers? I know I was not. A page turner as only Hoag can deliver.

Tami Hoag usually holds my interest, but this one was very boring and long on words

Another great book by Tami Hoag. I've read every one of her books and she never disappoints.

It was a good book. Not up to the standard of the author.
