Discovered by a group of Benedictine nuns in a muddy ditch by the side of a French country road, Eve has only good American dentistry and a tattered Moroccan ferry ticket scribbled with Arabic letters to point to her identity. That, and a bullet wound to her brain that she miraculously survives, even as it destroys her memory. Plagued by horrific nightmares, reluctant to face the truth about her past, Eve makes a life for herself within the convent's walls. But when the nuns who have sheltered her for a year are brutally massacred and the one terrified survivor declares to Eve: "They came for you," Even realizes that, whoever she was in her past life, she had powerful enemies, enemies who still wish to harm her and those around her. She sets out for Morocco in a desperate attempt to retrace her steps, uncover her past, and figure out who's after her, and why--before it's too late.

"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."
"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
