This is the story of a narrator who is losing her mind, or is she? Rose Denton awakens in the middle of the night in a field, sitting in her car on which she discovers blood. But when she tries to find someone or something injured, there. Is nothing and no one around to explain the blood. She drives home and cleans her car, then has to deal with the reality that she may be culpable for a horrible crime. She also finds out that a young worker is missing from the hotel that she was supposed to stay in that night, and her daughter’s boyfriend is also missing. Did she have anything to do with their not being around any more? Rose has a marriage that is falling apart and a relationship with her daughter that is non-existent. She also has a memory that continues to fail her. The drama in this novel is real, but the pace is slow. You just want to tell the narrator to get on with it and let you in on the secrets that she is guarding so closely. Rose is not a very good narrator as she continues to get off the track of the story, with a lot of side issues with her boss, her job and a co-worker. The book was an enjoyable read, but not fast-paced or action-packed. It does fool the reader with a lot of clues that lead you in the wrong direction, so the ending is a surprise.
