"Something else had happened...Something so terrible that she was too frightened to search her memory for it..."
The newspapers reported the case with relish. Jane (Jinx) Kingsley, fashion photographer and heiress, tried to kill herself after being unceremoniously jilted by her fiancé, who has since disappeared - together with Jinx´s best friend Meg.
But when Jinx wakes from her coma, she can remember nothing about the alleged suicide attempt. With the help of Dr Alan Protheroe of the Nightingale Clinic, she slowly begins to piece together the fragments of the last weeks. Then the memories begin to surface...Memories of utter desperation and absolute terror.
