Dr. Zoe Goldman is a resident in psychiatry at a Buffalo, New York, hospital. She takes a real dislike to one of her patients, Sofia, a beautiful sociopath who murdered her mother, maimed her brother, and has spent more than 20 years in hospitals. Zoe's supervisor suggests that Sofia be released, which makes Zoe very uncomfortable. Meanwhile, Zoe is dealing with personal issues: her boyfriend recently moved away, and the long-distance relationship is strained. The mother who adopted her is suffering from increasing dementia, and Zoe is desperate for information about her birth mother. The deeper she delves into her past, the more confused she gets. She is having recurring nightmares from her childhood, when she was caught in a house fire, and her therapist reluctantly tries hypnosis with minimal results. This is a serious look at a variety of mental illnesses, especially blocked memories, but the thriller element isn't ignored. The suspense keeps building throughout until the shocking ending. This is a riveting debut from a promising new author. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
