Find Me- by Alafair Burke
A very compelling story line by Alafair Burke. Amnesia that doesn't go away. Woman is found after a car accident. No one else in the car, out of state license plate, no identification. She is found by an attorney Lindsay Kelly who becomes her best friend and advocate. The woman is "re"named Hope. After being embraced by the town, and settles in for years as Hope. Eventually she sets off independently to a new place to start over. But Lindsay is uneasy about this new found confidence, and rightly so, as Hope will not answer her calls and is nowhere to be found. There is blood in the last place Hope was seen and a the next day the body of a man connected to that blood is found in the lake. Fingerprints are connected to a crime scene in an entirely different state and how the two separate story lines meet is an interesting ride. I enjoyed this.-Kim Luke
Some pasts won’t stay forgotten . . .
She calls herself Hope Miller, but she has no idea who she actually is. Fifteen years ago, she was found in a small New Jersey town thrown from an overturned vehicle, with no clue to her identity. Doctors assumed her amnesia was a temporary side effect of her injuries, but she never regained her memory. Hope eventually started a new life with a new name in a new town that welcomed her, yet always wondered what she may have left behind—or been running from. Now, fifteen years later, she’s leaving New Jersey to start over once again.
Manhattan defense lawyer Lindsay Kelly, Hope’s best friend and the one who found her after the accident, understands why Hope wants a new beginning. But she worries how her friend will fare in her new East Hampton home, far away from everything familiar. Lindsay’s worst fears are confirmed when she discovers Hope has vanished without a trace—the only lead a drop of blood found where she was last seen. Even more ominously, the blood matches a DNA sample with a connection to a notorious Kansas murderer.
