Hannah Manning is a foreign correspondent in Afghanistan for a major Canadian newspaper when an IED causes her traumatic brain injury, also killing her photographer lover and causing her to miscarry their child. Unable to live independently months later, with disabling headaches among her limitations, she's recuperating on her sister's family farm in Prince Edward County, Ontario. Here she befriends Hila, an Afghan woman disfigured when the rest of her family was assassinated, who is now staying with neighbors who have retired from the foreign service. When Hila disappears and is found murdered, Hannah finds herself a suspect--she's been suffering from blackouts and has no alibi.

War correspondent Hannah Manning is fighting to recover from a severe brain injury while staying with her sister's family on their Ontario farm. Hannah feels useless; she sleeps, she has terrifying visions, and most problematic, she suffers from long blackouts. Her niece, however, adores her and introduces Hannah to their neighbor, Hila, an Afghani refugee who is being sponsored by a local couple. When Hila disappears and her corpse is found in the woods days later, Hannah becomes a person of interest. Military intelligence is brought in for interrogations, and Hannah knows in her gut that something sinister is at work. Concurrently, Hannah channels visions of a ghostly woman whenever she goes into her family's root cellar; this story goes back into the late 1700s, when American colonists loyal to the British crown fled the newly establi

Reseña del editor:

It s the end of March and Trafalgar, British Columbia, is preparing for the last influx of the seasonal skiers. Teachers, parents, and students are preparing to relax at home or head off on vacation. But for high school English teacher Cathy Lindsay, the week of relaxation doesn t work out as planned. She s gunned down by a sniper on a hiking trail, her small dog the only witness.

Cathy Lindsay is an unlikely candidate for a murderous ambush: she was a respected teacher, in an apparently solid marriage to an Internet developer, living a quiet life. Sergeant John Winters, with the help of young Constable Molly Smith, digs into the Lindsay marriage and friendships, searching for a motive, but one thought continually niggles at the back of his mind: is it possible this was not a random killing but a case of mistaken identity?"
