Enhance your purchase
For a woman obsessed and a killer in her shadow, remembering the past becomes a mind game in a novel of psychological suspense by New York Times bestselling author Mary Burton.
Twin sisters Marisa and Clare Stockton were sixteen when Clare’s body was found in Virginia’s James River. No arrests were made. Fourteen years later, Marisa’s friends and dedicated career as a photographer help her to cope with the open wound of the past. But Marisa still feels the hurt―and the unsolved murder isn’t the only thing haunting her.
A recent car crash has erased ten days of Marisa’s memories―a black hole leading up to the accident that’s left her disoriented. Every text and phone call from that crucial missing time has vanished, along with her phone. A photograph she took of the river has disappeared. A new neighbor Marisa believes she knows introduces himself as if he were a stranger. And there’s the growing fear that her near-fatal accident was no accident at all. As dreams of Clare and nightmares of the crash begin to converge, so do two disturbing puzzles fourteen years apart.
Putting the pieces together could be fatal. As she struggles to remember everything, Marisa closes in on a killer―without realizing that he’s already closed in on her.

*Many thanks to the author for the ARC.
I read the book in one day, I was fascinated.
Marisa's friends aren’t happy with her dredging up the past, but the more Marisa looks for answers, the more questions she has as secrets from fourteen years ago come to light. Now the deadline for solving the murder looms as the detective who originally handled the case is set to retire soon. As Marisa uncovers new leads, it looks like it may be a case of mistaken identity and the killer actually thought Clare was Marisa.
Marisa's story is told through multiple POVs, with past and present timelines and a compelling cast of characters. The story drew me in and I stayed up way too late reading into the night because I absolutely had to find out how it ended. With twists and turns and shocking surprises, this riveting, hypnotic thriller will leave you gasping for breath, so don’t miss it!
