“A terrific new talent.”
—New York Times
bestselling author Peter James
When they find Evie Sherman left for dead in a maize field, the young woman has no recollection of who she is. But after three days in a hospital bed, she remembers two names: her own, and that of her three-year-old daughter, Angel.
The police can find no evidence of the girl’s existence. But Evie knows her daughter’s voice, her chameleon eyes, every precious hair on her head—and that Angel is in grave danger. So how can she be losing her mind?
As Evie’s grasp on reality slips away, she’s haunted by the same three-word warning: Trust no one. But who can’t she trust? The police? The doctors and nurses? Or the mysterious figure who’s been watching her, who knows all her secrets, and is ready to step out of the silence . . .
