Hit by a car and left for dead on a San Diego street, it is only because of her indomitable will that triathlete Zoey Morgan is able to fight her way back from death's door. Too bad she has left behind in that nether world, not only her memory of the vehicular assault, but the events that led to it. When the attacks against her escalate, and the police seem to regard Zoey more as a suspect than a victim, she must struggle alone to save her life.
Questions come to dominate her life, while answers remain illusive. What about Willi Bogs - why does she feel such intense hatred for the gentle troubadour who achieved fame only after his death? What about the switchblade -- why, when they brought her into the emergency room, did they find it taped to her ankle? The things this enigmatic heroine doesn't understand about herself could get her killed.
Fearing the loss of the man she loves, manager Martin Nolan Wright, Zoey pulls away from Marty. Is it a coincidence that she felt estranged from him only when the sparks began to fly between her and Dale Terry, the man who saved her life? Yet her trust may be misplaced. Dale seems torn by a loyalty that overrides the attraction he feels for Zoey, and his secret agenda may destroy her.
