"I'm part of the Transworld Book Group!" and have been invited to review this book.
I found it most entertaining and an excellent, exciting read.
It starts off as a more or less conventional thriller, set in Portland, Oregon. An unknown girl rescues several other girls from Russian white slave traders and is hailed a heroine, but there the mystery starts. She has lost her memory, is unable even to tell the police how she knew the girls were being held in the house she broke into. Given into the care of a half-English psychiatrist, Nathan Fox, he bonds with her and discovers she has the gift of multi-synaesthesia; she not only sees peoples' auras and sees numbers and letters as colours, but is able to tell if people have died violently in a room, even if it happened years ago. They call her Jane Doe, until her father, a cult leader, appears and claims her, calling her Sorcha, and she gradually discovers many sinister facts about her previous life, upbringing and relatives.
Worried about her, Nathan follows her to the cult's headquarters and is drawn into the explosive finale of the novel, where both their lives are at risk.
Very well told and highly readable, this book is hard to put down. I believed in the main characters and cared about them and the cult is believable at the time of reading (even if multi-synaesthesia at this level is a little over the top) and the deluded villain is truly hissable.
The end holds a question mark, and I hope the author may be inclined to take the adventures of Nathan and Jane/Sorcha into another book.
