While Daniel lies in a coma in the hospital in Las Vegas, Janie is told that the love of her life is married to his late wife's sister, Kristin Jurgen, the respected neurosurgeon who is treating him. Panicked and devastated, Janie doesn't know who, or what to believe. Too skeptical to go to the police, because of Kristen's stainless reputation as an award-winning doctor, Janie decides to take matters into her own hands . . .
My mind was spinning. I could hardly breathe. Standing inside Daniel’s hotel, where I’d been living so happily for the last few days, I tried to evaluate what was happening. My mouth was a gaping hole as I painfully swallowed the concierge’s words: “Her first name is Kristin. I believe her name, before she married, was Jürgen.”
“Daniel’s wife?” I asked again, as I leaned against Ethan’s front desk to support my Jell-O legs.
His eyes softened. “Look, I’m sorry. But . . . I’ll bet you’re not the first.”
The horror of what is happening to me is beneath my fingertips, but I cannot move them. It is on my breath but I cannot speak. It is before my eyes yet I cannot even blink.
But my brain is alive. Very much alive. I want to jump up and grab them by the throats—these gatekeepers who are forcing me to be imprisoned in my own body. I was awake. I was well. Janie was with me and it was a matter of hours—yes, hours—before I knew I’d be up and running again. I could taste recovery. But then they medicated me. Medicated me back to oblivion.
