Thriller Psychological | Suspense
On Parrish Island, a restricted island off the coast of
Virginia, there is a little known and never visited
psychiatric facility. There, far from prying eyes, the
government stores former intelligence employees whose
psychiatric state make them a danger to their own
government, people whose ramblings might endanger ongoing
operations or prove dangerously inconvenient.
One of these employees, former Consular Operations agent
Hal Ambler, is kept heavily medicated and closely watched.
But there's one difference between Hal and the other
patientsâ€”Hal isn't crazy. With the help of a sympathetic
nurse, Hal manages to first clear his mind of the drug-
induced haze and then pulls off a daring escape. Free, he's
out to discover who stashed him there and whyâ€”but the world
he returns to isn't the one he remembers. Friends and
longtime associates don't remember him, there are no
official records of Hal Ambler, and when he first sees
himself in the mirror, the face that looks back at him is
not the one he knows as his own.
