Staff Reviews

Jess wakes up in terrible pain, uncertain who she is or where she is. Things get worse when she learns she is accused of murder. With no memory of events leading up to the fire which has disfigured her and caused the death of a child, Jess comes to believe she is guilty and refuses food. On the edge of death, she is visited by the ghost of the boy who died. He wants Jess to help find his real murderer, but what can she do from prison? A thriller with a sci-fi twist, Carey asks the reader to go into another plain of consciousness with Jess and the ghost to solve the mystery. You'll want to read just one more chapter before your head hits the pillow.

“Let's say you've been convicted of murder and sent to a maximum security prison for the remainder of your life, which should be a while since you are not that old. Then let's say that not only can you not remember killing anyone, but you can't remember who you are. Could things get any worse? How about if the ghost of the little boy you supposedly killed visits you in prison to ask for your help. What do you do? From the author of The Girl With All the Gifts comes another gripping and unforgettable story.”
