That's just the beginning of Jake's trip down the rabbit hole. As he investigates, he finds that not only is Natalie not Todd’s widow, she might not even be a real person. He turns to friends he and Natalie knew for help, but he can't find them or they don't remember him. Was Natalie real? Did Jake dream her up, or is it everyone else who's hallucinating? Why would everyone be pretending not to know her? Not to remember Jake? Coben takes us on a wild ride as we find out.
