The girl in apt 19 : a novel
A year and a half ago, Cornelia Winthorp was in a car accident that killed her fiancé, placed her in a coma for 226 days, and left her with brain damage causing chronic paranoia. Now, she lives every day feeling like someone is watching her. Following a friend’s untimely death, she takes steps to rejoin the world of the living. Desperately short on rent money and starting to feel pinched, she recognizes opportunity in a well-dressed man and slips a few hundreds from his wallet, only to find a flash drive bearing a logo that - just like him - seems oddly familiar. Upon further examination of the strange medical documentation it contains, she learns why: At some point during her coma, she was awake – and he was her doctor. Now, he’ll do anything to bring her back under his care.
