    • Abstract:
      Summary: "#1 New York Times bestselling author Tami Hoag delivers a shocking new thriller...Dana Nolan was a promising young TV reporter until a notorious serial killer tried to add her to his list of victims. Nearly a year has passed since surviving her ordeal, but the physical, emotional, and psychological scars run deep. Struggling with the torment of post-traumatic stress syndrome, plagued by flashbacks and nightmares as dark as the heart of a killer, Dana returns to her hometown in an attempt to begin to put her life back together. But home doesn't provide the comfort she expects. Dana's harrowing story and her return to small town life have rekindled police and media interest in the unsolved case of her childhood best friend, Casey Grant, who disappeared without a trace the summer after their graduation from high school. Terrified of truths long-buried, Dana reluctantly begins to look back at her past. Viewed through the dark filter of PTSD, old friends and loved ones become suspects and enemies. Questioning everything she knows, refusing to be defined by the traumas of her past and struggling against excruciating odds, Dana seeks out a truth that may prove too terrible to be believed...-- Provided by publisher.

Booklist Reviews 2014 December #1

*Starred Review* Hoag has been writing nail-biting thrillers for years, but this time she ups the ante. The suspense remains high, but the stakes are even higher as Hoag delves into traumatic brain injuries and post-traumatic stress disorder. Dana Nolan is a TV reporter who is kidnapped and tortured by a serial killer called Doc Holliday—until she kills him. She suffers a traumatic brain injury in the process, as well as psychological damage that will take much longer to heal. The news reporter is now the news story, and she considers herself as Before Dana and After Dana, as if she were two different people. Dana soon realizes that she needs goals in order to move ahead. She starts by trying to relearn her own life, reading her old high-school journal, and slowly her memories start coming back. The summer before college, her best friend, Casey, disappeared, and as Dana looks at her own life, she also looks at Casey's. Casey's old boyfriend, who was always under a cloud of suspicion surrounding Casey's disappearance, is back in town, now a veteran and suffering from PTSD and a brain injury himself. Seven years have passed, and as these two damaged people try to find ways to live a normal life under the most difficult of circumstances, solving the old mystery gives them focus. This unusual take on a serial-killer novel offers a most welcome exploration of traumatic brain injury and what it is like to be a survivor. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.

TV news reporter Dana Nolan, who escaped from a serial killer, still suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder. Is that why everyone looks suspect when she reopens the investigation of her best friend's disappearance after high school graduation?

Dana Nolan, the heroine of this chilling psychological thriller from bestseller Hoag (The 9th Girl), used to be a Minneapolis TV reporter, until she was captured by the serial killer known as Doc Holiday, who tortured and raped her. Dana managed to escape her tormentor, but she suffers from PTSD as well as a traumatic brain injury that causes her difficulty performing everyday tasks and retrieving words and memories. When Dana returns to her hometown in Indiana to live with her mother and stepfather, reporters ask her about Casey Grant, her best friend since grade school, who mysteriously disappeared the summer after their high school graduation seven years before, never to be found. Dana gets reacquainted with Casey's old boyfriend, John Villante, whom many locals suspect killed Casey. As her memories of Casey re-emerge, Dana determines to discover what happened to her friend. Hoag fans will appreciate the cameo appearances of detectives Nikki Liska and Sam Kovac from earlier books. Agent: Andrea Cirillo, Jane Rotrosen Agency. (Jan.)
