PHANTOM INSTINCT by Meg Gardiner - SIGNED FIRST EDITION BOOKSee all titles by Meg Gardiner.
When shots ring out in a crowded
L.A. club, bartender Harper Flynn watches helplessly as her boyfriend,
Drew, is gunned down in the cross fire. Then somebody throws a Molotov
cocktail, and the club is quickly engulfed in flames. L.A. Sheriff
Deputy Aiden Garrison sees a gunman in a hoodie and gas mask taking aim
at Harper, but before he can help her a wall collapses, bringing the
building down and badly injuring him.
A year later, Harper is trying to
rebuild her life. She has quit her job and gone back to college.
Meanwhile, the investigation into the shoot-out has been closed. The two
gunmen were killed when the building collapsed.
Certain that a third gunman
escaped and is targeting the survivors, Harper enlists the help of Aiden
Garrison, the only person willing to listen. But the traumatic brain
injury he suffered has cut his career short and left him with Fregoli
syndrome, a rare type of face blindness that causes the delusion that
random people are actually a single person changing disguises.
As Harper and Aiden delve into
the case, Harper realizes that her presence during the attack was no
coincidence—and that her only ally is unstable, mistrustful of her, and
seeing the same enemy everywhere he looks.
