Compulsive, chilling, and utterly unputdownable, this is award-winning best-seller Lisa Gardner writing at her outstanding best.
My name is Nicky Frank. I'm in hospital after crashing my car. I am afraid. The only thing I can think about is Vero. I know I have to save her, but why couldn't I find her? She's just a little girl.
The man standing in my hospital room tells me we are married, but there is no Vero. That six months ago I suffered a traumatic brain injury which caused changes to my personality. I have dramatic mood swings, an inability to concentrate, and large gaps in my memory. I'm much easier to anger these days. And I drink. All of which, he says, explains the car accident and my confusion.
Now a Sergeant Wyatt Foster is investigating. He has questions about the car accident. He has concerns about my husband. And he's worried about a missing girl. He would like to know what happened to me. So would I. My name is Nicky Frank. This is my life. Watch me crash and burn.

OK, but not her best
The story is relatively fast-paced and offers a few interesting twists and surprises. Jennifer Woodward reads it well.
BUT: The inner monologues of the protagonist get extremely annoying after a while. Especially at the very beginning and the end. Moreover, the story is so far-fetched that it would have needed a more likeable cast of characters but they all remain "flat" somehow. I was not rooting for anyone which I find especially important if the storyline is so contrived.
Ultimately, it's an ok read but Gardner has done better.
