Fans of books with unreliable narrators like THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN and GONE GIRL will devour BLACK OUT! Entertainment Weekly calls it a “hurricane of a thriller” and the Today show names it a Top 10 Summer Read!
When my mother named me Ophelia, she thought she was being literary. She didn’t realize she was being tragic… On the surface, Annie Powers’s life in a wealthy Florida suburb is happy and idyllic. Her husband, Gray, loves her fiercely; they have a beautiful young daughter, Victory. But the bubble surrounding Annie is pierced when she senses that the demons of her previous life, when she was known as Ophelia March, have resurfaced and, to her horror, are now creeping up on her. Disturbing events—the appearance of a familiar dark figure on the beach, the mysterious murder of her psychologist—trigger strange and confusing memories for Annie, who realizes she has to quickly piece them together before her new life is taken away from her.
