When life seems so very simple and set all it takes is one email to mess it up. That is what happened to Basil Adair. She clicks on the email and from there sets her in a tail spin of mystery of what these emails are about. Her life becomes endangered and she wakes one day not knowing who she is or where she is. Each day from there is a new day with trials of remembering her past. Slowly her memories lash out during her sleep. Her most vivid dreams or memories arrive all at once. She remembers what the emails are about and who sent them, who murdered the girl and who she is. Basil Adair, architect, wife, friend.

Eyes rolling back, she turned just in time to miss heaving the contents of her stomach onto herself. One last look around the room and she fell back in to her darkened agony.
