Kira Shanahan wakes from a coma with a steel plate in her head and not a lot else. And it’s too easy to let herself flow in the current of her mother’s tender care. Her wedding plans go on, but she can’t work up the least bit of enthusiasm about them.

Eventually she goes in search of her old life and finds a wardrobe of denim and leather, and a small arsenal.

And suddenly there’s a bad-ass version of herself looking back at her, and she wonders if she really wants to know.
