"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 fiance, Leo Wallader. Leo has since disappeared, together with Jinx's best friend, Meg Harris. But when she wakes from the coma, Jinx can remember nothing about her alleged suicide attempt. Then the memories begin to surface - memories of utter desperation and absolute terror. Recuperating in the Nightingale Clinic under the care of Dr Alan Protheroe, Jinx slowly begins to unlock her nightmares and piece together the fragments of the last few weeks. The truth about what happened to her lies deep within her mind. But what other terrifying memories is she about to disturb?
