Having taken on a media relations position with the Yavapai County Police Department, Ali Reynolds' first time out on the job is trial by fire.
When a brand new housing estate goes up in flames, everyone hopes that the unfinished, unoccupied homes will yield no victims. But one woman is found barely alive and beyond recognition. For months she lies in a medically-induced coma, unclaimed and unidentified. When she finally awakes, badly disfigured and with no clue as to who she is or where she came from, she faces a bleak future.
The victim faces even worse news when she's diagnosed with terminal cancer, and her quest to discover her identity takes on even greater urgency. In her new role, Ali Reynolds is called upon to grant the dying woman's final wishes: to find the people who saved her life - and the people who tried to kill her.
