About this item
The past can be a foreign country and, for Kim Slade, a clinical psychologist specializing in young women with eating disorders, it’s deadly, too.
No sooner than Kim returns to work after a mental breakdown, she’s summoned to the deathbed of a former client, Mimi Vellender. Mimi’s dying wish is that Kim finds her brother, Nicholas, who mysteriously disappeared five years ago.
Just as mysteriously, Kim’s long-estranged mother, Monica, comes back into her life following the suspicious death of the judge she worked for as a live-in housekeeper. Is the sudden desire for a family reunion all it seems, or does Monica have something to hide?
