Synopsis of book»

An unidentifiable woman is found on a roadside, beaten into a coma and raped.  The man who finds her, troubled by his inability to resuscitate her, spends hours at her hospital bedside, talking to the woman everyone calls Elise.  Two years later Elise's condition is downgraded to persistent vegetative state - if the hospital takes her off life support, Elise's attacker will be guilty of her murder. Now months away from retirement, Chief Superintendent Frances Harman has been assigned to investigate Elise's case. 

In a satisfyingly complex story of deadly crime, kidnapping, disappearance, and identity theft, can this warhorse of a detective beat the odds, the stress, and the danger that may just be too much for one woman to handle?
