Who is Lacy James Pryde? Is she a schemer out to take her brand new wealthy husband for all she can get? Or is she the former girlfriend of a convicted killer who wants her dead? The woman they call Lacy has no idea.

Following a hit-and-run accident, Lacy James Pryde is suffering from amnesia as well as scars and injuries. When her Texas tycoon husband Jesse Pryde arrives at the hospital, Lacy has already been alone for three weeks. Why was no one looking for her? It soon becomes apparent that Jesse has very bitter feelings toward Lacy. However, he won't abandon her while she is in such fragile shape.

Jesse's mother Rose Pryde is none too happy to see her prodigal daughter-in-law. Rose had hoped that she'd seen the last of Lacy. Rose has her own objectives and nothing or no one is going to get in her way.

Lacy is utterly confused. At times she thinks that everyone is nuts and she is not really Lacy Pryde, but then she has a memory flash that seems to confirm matters. The more she discovers about herself and her "past," the less she likes. While the flashes of memory tell Lacy that someone is trying to kill her, they don't reveal enough to indicate who.

Everyone is watching Lacy, including the FBI. Will she be able to unlock the secrets hidden in her mind, or will the killer or killers get to her first?
