Chloe Benson wakes up kidnapped and bound in an underground tomb with no memory of how she got there. She manages to escape but no one believes her story—not the police, not the doctors, and especially not her husband, Liam.
When she suspects Liam is lying to her, Chloe is forced to retrace her past, following in her own footsteps to find the truth and stay alive. But who is following Chloe?
Look behind you. You never know who's out there.
Someone wants Chloe Benson out of the picture, she's sure, but who? and why? Or is she being paranoid and just imagining everything? This is a psychological journey into her mind as she tries to put together all the pieces that will give her the answers she needs.
The story starts with some very claustrophobic scenes. Chloe wakes up and finds herself bound and in complete darkness. She has pains all over her body. She doesn't know where she is and doesn't remember how she finished there. After a lot of struggle, despair and much determination she makes it out of the underground trap in which she was and runs for her life through the woods.
She then finds herself in hospital being treated for dehydration and shock. She knows that someone kidnapped her. After being questioned by doctors and the police, she realises that she has lost her memory. She knows who she is but she can't remember anything that happened in the last few weeks.
Having previously suffered from depression and hallucinations, no one believes her story. They are convinced that Chloe has imagined everything. That this is another story lived only in her mind, maybe triggered by some reaction to the medicine she was taking. But Chloe knows that she didn't imagine her ordeal; she knows she's not mad, does she?
With her memory loss, having no support from anyone and suspicious of everyone, including her husband Liam, Chloe is on her own but determined to dig deep in her quest to find the truth. But will she make it on time before whoever kidnapped her last time returns to complete the deed? Or is everything only in her mind?
This is a terrific story, full of twists and turns as the author skilfully unwraps the mystery little by little. I really enjoyed reading this Sibel Hodge thriller and am looking forward to read more from this talented author.
