On the first page of this fiendishly crafty novel, the narrator, Amber Reynolds, admits three things to the reader: "1. I'm in a coma. 2. My husband doesn't love me anymore. 3. Sometimes I lie."
The story of Amber's current dire situation is tantalizingly revealed by her partial memory of the recent past and a series of childhood diaries. And thus is woven an intricate web of past and present, fact and fiction, victim and villain, that's sure to dazzle and shock fans of psychological thrillers. (CH)
