IF YOU CAN’T TRUST YOUR FAMILY…
When Melanie wakes up in hospital all she knows is that she can’t remember any of the first nine years of her life and no-one is there waiting for her.
Twenty years ago, Melanie Stokes was abandoned in a Boston hospital, then adopted by a wealthy couple. Gifted with a loving family, Melanie has always considered herself lucky. Until tonight.
Tonight, a has-been reporter turns up investigating her past. Tonight the first note arrives, saying, “You Get What You Deserve.” And tonight, Melanie has her first, horrifying vision of the past.
Melanie has no memory of her life before the adoption. Now someone wants to give it back, even if it includes the darkest nightmare the Stokes family ever faced: the murder of their first daughter in Texas. As Melanie desperately searches for her real identity, two seemingly unrelated events from the past will come together in a dangerous explosion of truth.
