AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Jane Halifax is back, but she’s not quite herself … A twisted story of betrayal, where the formidable forensic psychiatrist will discover that the only person you can trust is yourself.

'A near-fatal car accident has left Jane in a coma. When she wakes, she has no idea who she is.

'Initially comforted by unlikely spectres from past cases, Jane is unaware of everyone else’s concerns: the police who believe she was deliberately run off the road; a lawyer whose files were in her car at the time of the accident – files he should never have lent her; her neurosurgeon who fears a relapse; and her partner, Tim, who has to cope with the fact Jane remembers almost nothing of the last two years – including their relationship.

'A young woman called Luna keeps luring Jane back to the present. Linked to a thirty-year cold case from Jane’s past, Luna has a quest of her own she can only solve with Jane’s help.

'But if Jane wants to help Luna, she first needs to heal herself, and there just might be reasons beyond the accident that are hampering Jane’s recovery.' (Publication summary)
