In 1955, Alexandra Durant is unexpectedly dismissed from her graduate program mere months before receiving her PhD. Hardened by her experiences and the disease that took away her mother’s memory, Alexandra is wary when the powerful dean of the psychology department, John Marlowe, offers her a servant position at his elderly mother’s house with the dangling promise that — if she’s a good girl — she’ll get her life back.
Now, secluded on a private island off the coast of Maine, Alexandra is confronted by mysteries far more sinister than anything John Marlowe let on: bereaved inhabitants that descend upon the island with dark secrets and an unwelcome house guest with his own hidden past.
And when it all leads to a gruesome murder, Alexandra must gather the unlikely skill of a near-perfect memory and the knowledge of how the mind works to find out who the killer is — and make sure that she’s not next.
