An amnesiac main character

MY REVIEW

My first foray into a Kate White book, I was pulled in by the premise of the story with an amnesiac main character Ally Linden wanting to know what had happened to her in the past two days.

Ally, a finance analyst found herself in her old office only to learn she had left that office five years ago. She slowly recovered her memory except for the past 2 days. What had happened to her in those days? The mystery deepened when she found a wad of tissues with dried blood on it.

I loved how Ally acted when she found herself in a pickle. She kept her cool and tried to get to the bottom of the mystery even to the point of hiring the detectives.

The story was a bit slow to read, but I didn’t mind that as it was a slow day for me. The perp was obvious, but I turned a blind eye to everything evident and kept reading. I liked most of the story as it kept the suspense going. But…

Then came my real niggle; the ending was too abrupt. I felt I was missing a few pages where the subplots were not completed for me. Ah well, some books were like that. They ended in the blink of an eye.

Acradacabra… And the book was done!! 😂 😂 Well, what could I say. On to my next.

MY RATING

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

BOOK BLURB

The key to her missing memories could bring relief—or unlock her worst nightmares.

On a cold, rainy morning, finance journalist Ally Linden arrives early to work in her Manhattan office, only to find that she’s forgotten her keycard and needs to have a colleague she’s never met let her in. When her boss finally arrives, he seems surprised to see her—because she hasn’t worked there in five years.

Ally knows her name, but little else, and it’s only after several hours in an emergency room and multiple interviews with the hospital psychiatrist that she begins to piece together important facts: she lives on the Upper West Side; she’s now a freelance personal finance journalist; she’s married to a lovely man named Hugh. But she still can’t recall what happened to her during the previous two days. When she learns that she’s experienced a dissociative fugue state, Ally tries to think of triggers and remembers that she’d been seeing a therapist about a traumatic event from her childhood, in which she came across evidence for a murder that was never solved.

Desperate to unearth answers, Ally focuses on figuring out where she spent the missing forty-eight hours. As ominous details of the two days pile up, so does the terrifying pressure: she must recover the time she lost before the time she has left runs out.
