The dream jolts her awake. In the hazy, gray glint of a Los Angeles dawn, it leaves her feeling anxious, disconnected...Her memory has vanished. She doesn't know if Ariel Gold, the name on a California driver's license, is hers. All she knows in her panic is that she is badly cut and bruised; she is in a house that has been viciously ransacked; and, on a crumpled heap of c ...more

I gave this book 4 stars because it was defintely suspenseful and hard to put down. The pluses: the story draws you in immediately; the protagonist is very likeable; good descriptions of her friends and neighbors. The bad: there's several situations that are difficult to suspend belief about, right from the start. Like why wouldn't she tell anyone she has amnesia? Why would she return to a house where she is obviously in danger? I could go on. But very good for a first book.

Judy Mercer only wrote four books that I can find. This is the first of a series featuring protagonist Ariel Gold.

Ariel awakens one morning with no memory of who she is or what her life is like. As she stumbles and fumbles around to figure this out, she is pursued by a killer.

Mercer is a masterful storyteller. I only wish she had written more.

I was surprised how much I like this series. It was a impulse purchase and I'm glad I made it.

Exciting mystery that completely baffled me. There were twists and turns and the ending was not predicatable. Excellent

This wasn't a bad book. You can tell it was the author's first novel. Not that it mattered, but there were punctuation missing in areas as well as misspelled words, but it took nothing away from the story. I did find myself getting lost on occasion, because of how something was written and I would have to re-read to see who really was supposed to be talking at that time. I do like the story line, twins, separated at birth, raised differently, but yet ending up in the same area at the same time. ...more

The story was really interesting and compelling but I hated the writing. I didn't finish the book because it was too much work reading it. Sometimes I felt like the author was writing just for the sake of making it longer. I appreciate descriptive language but that's not what I found. It was just wordy and long for the sake of being long. If the writing was more concise I probably would have loved this book! I might go back and read it because I'm really curious to find out what happened...but I ...more

It's really 3.5 stars. Not my favorite book, and I won't hunt down others by this author, but still interesting. The story took some time to get into (150 pages roughly) but by the end I was caught up in the story and interested. Probably worth reading if you run across a used copy somewhere but nothing worth running out to find.
