Publisher's Summary

A beautiful Jane Doe with no memory of who she is or how she got to the bottom of a treacherous ravine...and a psychiatrist who joins her on her search for her identity.

Dr. Phyl Forster was intrigued by the lovely woman who had been recovered from a San Francisco hillside and taken to the hospital where Forster was a resident psychiatrist. When Jane Doe regained consciousness, Dr. Phyl was at her side. It was then she realized that the patient had lost all memory of who she was or why she was in a hospital. Was it an accident, or was she, as Detective Franco Mahoney was beginning to suspect, the victim of attempted murder?

In an attempt to reconstruct her past, patient and doctor travel back in time across continents to Hawaii, Paris, and the South of France. It is a long and circuitous journey - one that leads to mortal danger and thrilling romance.

What the Critics Say

"Adler is expert at digging deep into her characters' psyches and showing what makes them tick. Her villain here is obvious but wonderfully portrayed-as are all the other characters in this well-plotted, entertaining work." (Publishers Weekly)

    Any additional comments?

    The "memory" sections were too long. Generally it was too wandering.

    "Ran out of steam"

    The story is intriguing but it seemed like the author changed in the last 1/3 of the book and the connections were too neat and tidy. The audio recording/narrator was above par.
