Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

On the surface, Annies life in a wealthy Florida suburb is happy. Her husband, Gray, loves her fiercely; together, they dote on their beautiful young daughter, Victory. But the bubble surrounding Annie is pricked when the demons of her past resurface. These are demons she cant fully recall because of a highly dissociative state that allowed her to forget the violence of her earlier life as Ophelia March and to start over, under Gray's protection, as Annie Powers. Disturbing events—the appearance of a familiar dark figure on the beach, the mysterious murder of her psychologist—trigger confusing memories for Annie, who realizes she must quickly piece them together before her past comes to claim her future and her daughter.

"[A] hurricane of a thriller...impossible to extract yourself until the last page." —Entertainment Weekly

Today show pick for Top 10 Summer Reads (2008)

"Full of twists and turns. A great read for anyone craving some suspense." —John Searles, Cosmopolitan

"Black Out is riveting psychological suspense of the first order. If you haven't yet experienced Lisa Unger, what are you waiting for?" —Harlan Coben

Synopsis:

"As "Black Out" spirals through one shock after another, it becomes increasingly clear that not only can [the narrator] Annie trust no one else, she can't always trust herself"--"St. Petersburg Times."

Synopsis:

When my mother named me Ophelia, she thought she was being literary. She didn't realize she was being tragic.

On the surface, Annie Powers's life in a wealthy Floridian suburb is happy and idyllic. Her husband, Gray, loves her fiercely; together, they dote on their beautiful young daughter, Victory. But the bubble surrounding Annie is pricked when she senses that the demons of her past have resurfaced and, to her horror, are now creeping up on her. These are demons she can't fully recall because of a highly dissociative state that allowed her to forget the tragic and violent episodes of her earlier life as Ophelia March and to start over, under the loving and protective eye of Gray, as Annie Powers. Disturbing events--the appearance of a familiar dark figure on the beach, the mysterious murder of her psychologist--trigger strange and confusing memories for Annie, who realizes she has to quickly piece them together before her past comes to claim her future and her daughter.

From the Hardcover edition.
