To what lengths would you go to keep a past buried?
Samantha Moore is the golden girl—with a perfect job, a perfect man, a perfect life—until a random act of violence changes everything. Unconscious for two months, Sam awakens from her coma a different person—bitter, in constant pain, and forced to endure medications that leave her nauseous, paranoid, and struggling to keep a grip on reality.
Furious with her family for sending her away to a remote small town to recuperate—placed completely under a physical therapist’s care and robbed of what little freedom she had left—Sam lashes out at the “nice people” all around her who claim to have only her best interests in mind. But are her violent outbursts the byproduct of her condition…or something else entirely? Strange things are happening here—and either Samantha Moore is losing her mind or her friendly new neighbors are far more dangerous than they appear to be…
