The succesful recent Spanish Thriller.
My name is Margaret McGregor
Six years ago I was admitted to a psychiatric hospital with severe traumatic shock. Apparently, I tried to murder my husband in a jealous rage.
As a result, my mind has been fragmented and I suffer from a rare type of amnesia that makes my brain create false memories.
I have married again, I have a baby daughter and I live in a nice house in Edinburgh where I am trying to build a new life, closing doors to the past and what happened that tragic night.
But I am not happy. Something has me in suspense, distraught., and I have the strange certainty that my life is not what it appears to be.
Worried about the possible relapse, I sought help from my psychiatrist, my husband and a stranger who claims to be my best friend and whom I do not recognize – but I do not trust them. I suspect they are hiding something from me, that for some reason they don´t tell me the whole truth.
According to the doctors, everything points to an intensification of my illness, or at least, that is what they are trying to make me believe. But what if it wasn´t? What if I´m not crazy? If I´ve never been? And if someone is trying to manipulate my mind with some dark purpose? What if they are medicating me with the intent to lock me up again?
I know I´m weak, mentally unstable, but I know I’m not crazy.
