"Payton Shields had known from the time she was a child that she wanted to be a doctor. Now she's in her first year or residency at a major Boston children's hospital. She's made it to the top through relentless drive, stellar academic credentials, and a mountain of debt to Harvard Medical School. She's working impossibly long hours but she has the life she wants. Then, late one night, driving home through a heavy snowstorm, she sees a car coming straight toward her, driving her off the road and into a frozen pond. Rescue comes in the form of a man who pulls her from the wreckage and walks away. Yet nobody believes her story, that the "accident" was no accident. This is the first in a series of strange, escalating events that take Payton deeper into danger from a faceless enemy who seems to know her every move. And she has to turn her considerable determination into catching a killer before he catches her."--Author's website.

You need to suspend your belief about 3 times per page (works out to about 1,200 times) to get through it. I've read some of his other books and at first, I thought he must have written this over the course of 1 weekend. No substance to anything. Not the story. Not the characters - not a single worthy character in the entire story, from the married couple at the centre of the story, to their work colleagues, their lovers, her parents, their lawyers, the judge, prosecutor, cops, the killer.

There were a few points that the story was a bit unbelievable but it was suspensful with some good twists that held up until the very end.
