Publisher's Summary

Abbie Devereaux lies flat on her back, her arms and legs tied down, her head covered with a hood. She senses the eyes that watch her. She feels the unknown hands that touch her in the dark. She knows she has been kidnapped but has little memory of her recent past. And she knows that all she has to do is stay alive, even though everything she is experiencing tells her she won't.

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.

A good yarn

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.

LV the French's writing but not this time.....

Especially the Freda Klein series (excellent stories—as both stand-alone fiction and as a continuing series) but I just cannot get into this one. It's not in the least suspenseful, and the narrator's voice makes this appear to be a teen-ager. I'm sorry to have to return it.
