The newspaper reported the case with relish. Jane (Jinx) Kingsley, fashion photographer and heiress, tried to kill herself after being unceremoniously jilted by her fiance, Leo Wallader. Leo has disappeared—together with Jinx's best friend Meg Harris. But when she wakes from her coma, Jinx can remember nothing about her alleged suicide attempt. Nevertheless, Jinx is convinced that she would never try to kill herself over Leo.… Surely it was she who wanted to break the engagement.

When the help of Dr. Alan Protheroe of the Nightingale Clinic, Jinx slowly begins to unlock her nightmares and piece together the fragments of the last few weeks. The truth about what happened to her lies deep within her mind. But what other terrifying memories is she about to disturb?

This book is no exception from the author's other works: amazing. I loved the storyline, the characters, the suspense and the mystery surrounding Jinx. I couldn't wait to find out who did it and as always, Walters managed to surprise me! I also loved The Devil's Feather, Acid Row and The Shape of Snakes by the same author. You may also enjoy the mysteries of Ruth Rendell, Barbara Vine, Sue Grafton and Morag Joss.

Thoroughly enjoyable read. Great plot, interesting characters, suspense and a touch of humour. I couldn't put it down.

Minette Walters is a very talented author, and her psychological thrillers cannot be beat for sheer terror and for audacity. She thinks nothing of leaving her readers way out in cold exploring motives and means, and then brings in the murderer somewhere from out in left field. This book is like that in spades. The characters in this book are truly intriguing. First there is Jinx Kingsley. She appears to be a suicide survivor with amnesia who has a reason and the wherewithal to kill. Then there is her father Adam who everyone knows is connected and would stoop at nothing to help those he loves. Jinx has two wastrel brothers who could be in the frame as well. I love the way these characters are developed, and the way that I learned to care for Jinx and to hope for the best for her when and if her memory ever came back. These books explore the darkest corners of the mind and I just can't stop turning pages.

This is one of her best books. I still dont know who did it but it was well worth the suspense. Jinx is a character you learn to love through the twists and turns of the book, the unexpected villian leaves you plainly horrified. Having read Scolds Bridle this can however only come second. A tret for Minette walters fans
