A woman has lost her memory. She may be a CIA agent gone bad--or an innocent target. But in a world of mirrors, it's almost impossible to see the truth--and even harder to escape it. "Move over, Ian Fleming . . . an engrossing story of international intrigue with Ťat last| a female heroine who can hold her own."--New Woman.

In a quiet Californian city, a beautiful woman awakes in a room she doesn't recognize. Beside the bed a man says her name, Liz Sainsbury. She struggles to remember it, to remember him, and to remember her life as a top US intelligence agent, but her mind is blank, and there is no time.Review:
One of the oldest chestnuts in the thriller genre--someone waking up with no memory and discovering they might be a murderer--is given a lively and original roasting in this, Gayle Lynds's first novel, which had reviewers comparing Lynds to Robert Ludlum and Ian Fleming. Lynds, whose background includes journalism and high-level involvement with international security, makes her amnesia victim, Liz Sansborough, a poignant and recognizable character. Is she really a CIA agent turned rogue killer, as the people who are looking after her insist? Or is she the innocent victim of some diabolic plot? You won't know for sure until you turn the very last page.
