    This is the story of a woman who is mixing prescription pills with alcohol and gradually losing her mind.  She's suffered such a devastating loss she can't put her life back together again.  She's a bit like Humpty Dumpty.  She's created her own little, safe place and it's not good for her but she can't change...

    William Morrow and Edelweiss allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published January 23rd.

    All she really does now is play chess, drink wine, take her pills when she remembers, and look out her windows at the neighbors and what they do.  She uses her camera with the telephoto lense to see into the houses or yards.  She's a snoop.  When she witnesses murder, she becomes a worried snoop.  No one believes her...

    This is a suspenseful psychological read with only part of the facts revealed at the beginning.  As it goes along, she begins to doubt herself.  She could have hallucinated.  Maybe she forgot some of what she did.  How else could someone post things on her account and take a picture of her sleeping in her bed?  The answer to that is disturbing.

    The cops believe that she believes what she's telling them but there's no proof.  The missing woman was not who she assumed she was.  No one else witnessed the murder.  And she has mental problems.  It's no comfort to her to find out she was right.  Now it's a fight for her life...
