Riassunto: Desperately searching for a way to recover her memory, a young American woman on the run must unlock a terrible secret from her past
Discovered in a ditch by the side of a country road in France, Eve has only good American dentistry and a ferry ticket scribbled with Arabic letters to suggest her identity. That, and a bullet wound in her brain that she miraculously survives, even as it destroys her memory. Only a few scattered violent images remain?or are they dreams??along with one undeniable physical fact: she has had a child.
When the nuns who have sheltered her for a year are brutally massacred, Eve realizes that whoever she was in her past life, she had powerful enemies. Just half a step ahead of her pursuers, she lights out for Morocco in an attempt to retrace her steps and discover her past. Away from the convent, she begins to discover things that startle her?among them, her capacity for violence and her facility with guns. Was she a spy? Who is the dying man in her nightmares? As she searches through spice-scented souks and glamorous nightclubs for clues to her past, she has to figure out who is after her, and why?before it?s too late.
Within scenes of heart-stopping terror, Jenny Siler?s lyrical writing and memorable images stand out. As Marilyn Stasio said of Easy Money in The New York Times Book Review, Siler?s is ?a voice that gets your attention like a rifle shot.?
Dal retro di copertina:
"With its exotic locales and with a heroine who resembles an action hero...this high-energy thriller is sure to please fans of the TV series 'Alias.'"
WHAT DOES SHE REMEMBER?
The sisters of an isolated French convent have rescued an American woman suffering from a head wound and no memory of how she got there. Dubbed Eve, the only clues to her identity are a ticket from a Tangier ferry, and proof that that she has had a child. No one has reported her missing. No one has claimed her. But someone is following her...
WHERE CAN SHE RUN?
When the nuns are massacred by intruders, Eve flees for Tangier. Plagued by fear, Eve follows the tracks of a stranger waiting in the shadows of Marrakech. He's a link to her family, to a lover, and to a past far more dangerous than Eve imagines.
WHOM CAN SHE TRUST?
But unraveling the secrets of her past is only the beginning of a nightmare. The more Eve discovers, the more she has to fear. For one terrifying piece of the puzzle remains, locked in the darkness of her mind-and what Eve knows could be the death of her.
"Moving and satisfying...Siler's hard and spare prose shines like highly polished pebbles."
-- Chicago Tribune
"Siler darkens the lost-identity theme and transfers the action to exotic locations in Morocco, lending a Hitchcock-like sense of disorientation...that is thick with atmosphere."
-- New York Times Book Review
