Dead Memories
Lissa Pelzer
(Carol Ann Baker, #2)
Publication date: December 19th 2016
Genres: New Adult, Thriller
Don’t you wish sometimes that you could just close your eyes and start again? With two counts of murder under her belt and Detective Davis after her, teenager Lilly Lessard has done just that. She’s taken her dead friend, Janine Kenny’s ID and scholarship and she’s off to California.
But when a traffic accident leaves her with amnesia and only Janine’s ID in her pocket, things take a turn for the surreal. Her caseworker wants to know why her memories don’t match her history. The hospital candy stripper has noticed her hair appears blonde at the roots when it should be black. And who is this man who wants to help her get to California, who is willing to sneak her out in the dead of night? Can he help her get back some of her dead memories?
EXCERPT
Chad rushed to the driver’s side door. ‘I didn’t hit her!’ he yelled at the paramedic getting out.
‘Okay, Buddy,’ came the reply, as he pushed Chad aside. ‘Make some space.’
Chad hovered, daring himself to look one minute, turning away the next. One of the paramedics was down on the ground with the girl, but he didn’t seem to be doing anything to her. But what would they do if she were already dead? Chad felt a panic coming over him. He backed away, but someone stopped him with a firm hand on his shoulder. It was another cop.
‘I didn’t hit her!’ Chad said again.
The cop had him by the arm now and was twisting him around. Chad felt the crush of a hand on his skull as the cop lowered him into the back seat. And the thought came to him, jammed him with its fingers like a drunk demanding attention, you haven’t killed anyone, but there are two dead bodies out here and you’re connected to both of them.
The patrol car door closed and Chad saw his breath misting up the window.
‘Hey! Hey! I need to talk to someone! I didn’t hit her!’ he shouted.
But no one could hear him.
Then there was a light from above as a helicopter came into land a hundred feet away. The paramedics had the stretcher out and the girl on it and they were scurrying along like kids who had stolen a crate of beer. And Chad leaned back in the seat. The girl was alive. They didn’t airlift dead bodies to hospital. She was alive. Surely, that was a good thing.
