Former FBI agent Arden Davis allowed herself to become a human guinea pig—and it cost her everything. Arden was part of Project TAKE, which used drugs and sensory deprivation to help test subjects focus on the minds of serial killers. Then her world was shattered when Albert French, one of the killers she was profiling, slaughtered her parents. Guilt ridden and unable to cope, Arden agreed to have her memories erased.

Present at the execution of Albert French, FBI agent Nathan Fury receives a posthumous note from him in which he claims that he did not kill Arden's parents. Arden may be their best option for finding the truth, but will she cooperate? Her past and present memories are mingling, causing pain and confusion. Can she even trust herself?

Talk about a twisted psychological thriller! The very talented Frasier has written an absolutely chilling and deeply disturbing novel that's as intense as it is dark. (May, 384 pp., $7.50)
