Par-dessus les battements de mon cœur, je l’entends.
Une toux. Derrière moi. Tout près. Trop près. »
À trente ans, Jenna reçoit un nouveau cœur et voit sa vie entièrement chamboulée. L’opération l’a sauvée, mais marque le début d’une longue descente aux enfers : cauchemars, paranoïa, impression d’insécurité. Est-elle victime d’un syndrome post-traumatique ? Ou un lien s’est-il noué avec sa donneuse, Callie, la forçant à vivre des souvenirs qui ne sont pas les siens ?
C’est ce que Jenna est déterminée à découvrir. Malgré les avertissements de ses proches, elle prend contact avec la famille de Callie. Qui était-elle ? Est-elle vraiment morte dans un accident ? Jenna est convaincue qu’on lui cache quelque chose, mais enquêter risque de tout lui coûter : ses amis, sa santé mentale et même sa propre vie...
Jenna nagyon beteg. Minden reményét elvesztette egy új szívre, amellyel tovább élhet. Már kihunyna belőle az élet, amikor megkapja egy Callie nevű lány szívét. Vajon ki volt a donor, és hogyan halt meg? Jenna elhatározza, hogy utána jár a dolognak.
Minél közelebb kerül azokhoz, akik szerették Callie-t, annál több kérdés merül fel a lány korai halálával kapcsolatban. Valaki biztosan tudja, mi történt. Miért hallgatnak, miért nem beszél senki?
Jenna közel jár az igazság felderítéséhez, de cserébe elveszítheti mindenét a szeretteit, a józan eszét, sőt az életét.
Louise Jensen, A nővér világsikerű szerzője újabb lebilincselően izgalmas, és félelmetes pszichológiai thrillert alkotott..
Depuis la mort de Charlie, Grace n’est plus que l’ombre d’elle-même. Hantée par les dernières paroles de sa meilleure amie, elle va au travail en traînant des pieds et ne sort presque plus. En prime, son couple bat de l’aile.
Pour reprendre sa vie en main, elle décide de relever un des défis de leur adolescence : retrouver le père de Charlie.
Mais c’est la demi-sœur de Charlie que Grace va rencontrer. Tandis que cette nouvelle prend une place grandissante dans sa vie, devenant peu à peu sa meilleure amie, Grace perd chaque jour davantage le contrôle de son existence : mauvais karma, paranoïa ou lourds secrets du passé revenus la tourmenter ?
Grace teljesen megváltozott a legjobb barátnője, Charlie halála óta. Kísértik az utolsó találkozásukkor mondott szavai, s miközben a válaszokat keresi, kinyitja Charlie régi emlékdobozát. Bizony sok mindent nem tudott a legközelebbi barátnőjéről.
Amikor kutatni kezd a lány édesapja után, jelentkezik nála Anna, aki azt állítja, hogy Charlie testvére. Grace számára ez olyan, mintha új családtagra lelne, és Anna csakhamar fölöttébb otthonosan érzi magát Grace és a barátja, Dan házában.
Valami azonban nem stimmel. Eltűnnek dolgok, Dan furán viselkedik, Grace pedig biztos benne, hogy követik. Mindez csak az ő elméjének a szüleménye, vagy szörnyű veszélyben van, ahogy egyre közelebb kerül az igazság felderítéséhez Charlie-val és Dannel kapcsolatban?
Semmit nem tehetett volna, hogy megmentse Charlie-t... Vagy mégis??
