This dream doesn’t feel like a dream.
He tries to lift his head. Can’t do it.
There is a doorway to his left, and beyond it a brightly lit corridor. Somebody walks past – a nurse …
James Garrett was critically injured when he was shot following his parents’ murder, and no one expected him to waken from a deep, traumatic coma. When he does, nine years later, Detective Inspector Reecca Kent is tasked with closing the case.
But between that, and hunting for a murderer on a spree, she’s going to need help … especially when they learn that James has lived out another life in his nine-year coma, and there are things he couldn’t possibly know.
