Miraculously, she escapes. One nightmare is over, but another is about to begin.
No one believes her story. Not the police who find her beaten and bruised on the outskirts of London, not the psychologists who interview her at the hospital. Desperate to piece together the fragments of her life and prove she is telling the truth, she returns to a strangely familiar existence. She discovers, but cannot remember why, she moved out of her boyfriend's apartment, left her job as an office planner, and moved in with a roommate who herself has mysteriously disappeared.
Now trying to reclaim both her mind and her life, she must dare to retrace her steps to the place where the horror began.

I like Nikki French's books, almost without exception. Land of the Living was not my favorite, but I enjoyed the twisting plot. I felt the heroine was a bit shallow and the narrator's depiction of her somewhat over the top, though this excess emerged toward the end of the book. I'll keep reading Nikki French.
