Summary
Karen and Tom Krupp are happy--they've got a lovely home in upstate New York, they're practically newlyweds, and they have no kids to interrupt their comfortable life together. But one day Tom returns home to find Karen has vanished--her car is gone and it seems she left in a rush. She even left her purse--complete with phone and ID--behind. There's a knock on the door. The police are there to take Tom to the hospital. His wife has had a car accident, and lost control as she sped through the worst part of town. The accident has left Karen with a concussion and a few scrapes. Still, she's mostly okay--except that she can't remember what she was doing or where she was when she crashed. The cops think her memory loss is highly convenient, and they suspect she was up to no good. Karen returns home with Tom, determined to heal and move on with her life. Then she realizes something's been moved. Something's not quite right. Someone's been in her house. And the police won't stop asking questions. Because in this house, everyone's a stranger. Everyone has something they'd rather keep hidden. Something they might even kill to keep quiet
Summary
Responding to a call she hoped she would never get, a woman braces herself for the worst in a bad part of town and wakes up with no memory of what happened at the same time the police and her husband accuse her of misconduct
