Garrick Thomas, a mystery writer, first meets Mara Edwards as he yearns for oblivion on the edge of a cliff outside the Caribbean asylum where they are both confined. As the killer from his bestselling novel lurks deep within his soul, Garrick battles his desire to end it all. Some days Mara, also a writer, is Irene Dunne; other days she is Marlene Dietrich. Most days she wanders around the asylum, the helpless victim of her own hallucinations. But when both patients witness a brutal fight and possible strangling on the asylum grounds, no one believes their account.
After detailing the fight to a security guard, Mara and Garrick meet with Dr. Stan Dickerson, who immediately suggests that the scuffle may have been just another one of their dreams. But just as Mara’s visiting daughter, Lauren, begins to dig into the details of the fateful night, she finds herself being romantically pursued by the man Mara says dragged a body into the bushes after the scuffle.
In this thrilling murder mystery, Garrick, Mara, and her daughter must take matters into their own hands as they investigate a potential murder. But there is only one problem—someone wants them dead too.
