Luckily, I got this book when it was available for a bargain rate one day, so I don't feel completely cheated. Still, it's disappointing to sit down expecting a certain caliber of work from an author only to be massively disappointed. I have read Tami Hoag books that I simply didn't want to put down because they were so engrossing, but this one isn't in that category.
Dana Nolan was just starting her career as a newscaster when she was kidnapped and tortured by a serial killer. After killing her kidnapper, Dana returns to her parents' home in Indiana to try to rebuild her life. Not only does she bear the physical scars from her attacker on her face and body, but she suffered traumatic brain injury. Not only does she not remember anything about her kidnapping, her memory of her life before her kidnapping is shaky, her short term memory is affected and her personality has changed.
While Dana is dealing with the repercussions of her brain injury, she is also renewing acquaintance with her former high school boyfriend, Tim, and her friend's former boyfriend, John. Tim left a promising career at West Point and came back to his hometown to become a police officer, inspired, he tells Dana, by the disappearance of Casey, who was Dana's best friend. John, a military veteran, who also has a traumatic brain injury, was the chief suspect in Casey's disappearance. Dana becomes interested in the unsolved mystery about Casey, especially when some suggest that the same serial killer who kidnapped Dana my have been responsible for Casey's disappearance.
While Dana is surrounded by a supportive family who have the financial resources to provide treatment for her and who try to help her overcome the challenges of her brain injury, John, whose mother abandoned him and his father when he was a young boy, has no support system. His father is abusive; he is unable to find or keep a job, and he cannot afford treatment.
I can't say that I was surprised by the identity of the killer, but, as I said, that was not what kept me reading this book. Hoag does a good job of describing the world of the TBI and PTSD survivors. I'd love to revisit these characters in about a year and see how they have continued to grow.

The ending was interesting and kind of expected, I thought "John" might end up being the good guy.
