Connie has woken up in a psychiatric hospital. She's been accused of a terrible crime, but she says she can't remember a thing.
Forensic psychiatrist Dr Emma Robinson is assigned to the case. Her assessment will determine Connie's fate: prison, life in hospital - or freedom.
Emma hopes the high-profile case will make her career but their sessions quickly become a cat-and-mouse game of manipulation and exploitation.
Emma must get close enough to her patient to uncover the truth. But when dealing with someone as potentially dangerous as Connie, how close is too close?

In the prologue of the pseudonymous Daniels's harrowing debut, Constance Mortenson, a successful writer and happy wife and mother, meets and befriends Vanessa Jones, who has moved into her London neighborhood. Connie and Ness become fast friends and nearly inseparable, until things go horribly wrong between them. Flash forward six years. A bruised, burned, and unrecognizable Connie, who has been diagnosed with dissociative amnesia, is awaiting trial for heinous crimes that she seemingly doesn't know she's committed. Emma Robinson, a forensic psychiatrist, must gain Connie's trust to determine whether the amnesia is feigned or real. Despite Emma's reserve and professional detachment, the patient and doctor begin to bond, finding they have much in common. Emma is surprised by Connie's warmth, charm, and wry humor, then jolted by her patient's flashes of seething hatred and bottomless pain. Each chapter, alternatively narrated by Connie or Emma, reveals each woman's darkest secrets and perceived sins. Daniels presents an unflinching, visceral look into the nature of love, fidelity, and betrayal.
