Alice Feeney has written a psychological thriller that is full of twists and turns. It is heart-pounding, hard to put down, and it will leave you dumbfounded! Amber Reynolds wakes up in a hospital. She is in a coma, and she can’t move, speak or open her eyes. But, she can hear everyone around her. This finely crafted whodunit alternates between her paralyzed state, her life a week before the accident and childhood diary entries from decades ago. You will keep asking yourself is her husband involved, what is real, what isn’t, what’s the truth and what’s a lie? I’ve read a lot of this genre and this one is a winner!

“I feel messed up after finishing this, which is what I look for in a thriller. The twists and turns are dizzying, leading to an ending you won't see coming. Amber is recovering from a car crash, and since she's not quite out of her coma, we get to see flashbacks of her life and the events that brought her to where she is today. Everything - her radio job, her writer husband, and her perfect sister, Claire - is not what it seems. But then, neither is Amber. A perfect thriller to discuss and deconstruct with your book club!”

NEW YORK TIMES AND INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER
"Boldly plotted, tightly knotted--a provocative true-or-false thriller that deepens and darkens to its ink-black finale. Marvelous." --AJ Finn, author of The Woman in the Window
My name is Amber Reynolds. There are three things you should know about me:
1. I'm in a coma.
2. My husband doesn't love me anymore.
3. Sometimes I lie.
Amber wakes up in a hospital. She can't move. She can't speak. She can't open her eyes. She can hear everyone around her, but they have no idea. Amber doesn't remember what happened, but she has a suspicion her husband had something to do with it. Alternating between her paralyzed present, the week before her accident, and a series of childhood diaries from twenty years ago, this brilliant psychological thriller asks: Is something really a lie if you believe it's the truth?
