I have read a couple of other books by Michael Koryta and really enjoyed them. Tara Beckley is escorting a visiting lecturer when a van slams into them. Leaving the lecturer dead and Tara locked in (conscious but unable to communicate or move). As she is fighting that battle there are others moving in on her. For reasons both good and bad. It is an exciting read. I lost track of time last night when I was reading it. Looking forward to the climax.
