Instead of lounging in the luxury of her Atlanta home, Josie opens her eyes to find herself in a mental hospital with no memory of how she got there. Why won't they let her leave? Why do they think she's dangerous? And why does everyone insist on calling her "Michelle"?
Only one man believes that the beautiful imprisoned patient is Josephine Ferrell - a doctor, William Hayes, who's willing to risk his career and his safety to help her escape. Spiriting the frightened young woman to a temporary sanctuary, they join forces in a desperate hunt for answers, keeping one step ahead of an intensive police manhunt for a missing patient they believe is a cold-blooded murderer.
