Casey Marshall, once a successful entrepreneur, is trapped inside of her own mind in this well-executed thriller. After surviving an accident, Casey awakens from a coma to discover that although she cannot communicate with her visitors, she can hear them. Unresponsive but lucid, she comes to chilling realizations that her friends may not be who they appear to be and that the hit-and-run that landed her in the hospital might not have been an accident. Kymberly Dakin's tone is steady, her delivery well-paced and rarely overtly manufactured. Her ability to convey claustrophobia and loneliness bring the helpless Casey to life. An Atria hardcover.
