She remembers what happened, but the doctor said her mind couldn’t be trusted. The physician says they aren’t memories, just hallucinations, mere by-products of a head injury. She knows there is more to that night than what they’re telling her.
Clarissa Tyler came from a good home with loving parents and a wide circle of friends. She, and her fiancé Nick, both prepared for college graduation and dreamed of a successful life together.
Until the accident happened. Until Nick died and that sheltered world collapsed.
She wakes in a remote and unfamiliar hospital after two months in a physician-induced fugue state. She is surrounded by an eccentric staff that won’t provide any details about the accident. She is given a generic story about how Nick died in the same automobile accident she is recuperating from, but she has undergone extensive therapy to alleviate her psychological trauma.
She believes there was no wreck, even if her doctor dismisses her. She must adapt to the bizarre practices within the Bittersend Medical Clinic, and the repercussions of her absence in her life, to piece together what really happened. The quest takes her far beyond simply reclaiming hidden memories and deep into a deadly conspiracy of wealth, power and cruelty.
