Walking The Edge
The next step might be the last...

A woman without a past
Left amnesiac after an accident, Amelia Jamison’s instincts slowly rise from the depths of oblivion to question her life as the wife of a cold, manipulating and distant man. Wisps of a dream show her another man she may have known intimately, but is he a memory, or a figment of her imagination?

A man with too much information
After many aliases, today Gerard Besson is simply a police commissaire in Marseille. When a mysterious woman starts to follow him, he is suspicious. But things aren’t what they seem, and as he reluctantly gets closer to her, dredges of his painful, buried past spring to light and make him question her identity.

Each seems to have led two different lives
But neither is prepared for what awaits them when they cross the fine line between knowing your true self and that of your alter ego.

Danger is the name of the game, and as it catches up with them in the French Provence, both know they better be ready for the inevitable fall.

 
 Walking The Edge (Corpus Brides Trilogy #1) by Zee Monodee

Walking The Edge (Corpus Brides Trilogy, #1)She woke up without a past, without a memory of who she was, what kind of person she was, who loved her and who wanted her gone. The cold stranger in front of her told her she was Amelia, his wife, but nothing about this man was familiar and he ruled with an iron fist and an arsenal of drugs to keep her under control. Somewhere in the back of her mind were fleeting thoughts, or ghosts of thoughts, a man, a life, and love. Nothing like the sterile and cold world she lives in now, complete with a bodyguard and a credit card for her only “friends.” Firing synapses, more flashes of another life, knowledge of things she shouldn’t know and dark shadows she cannot bring to the light. It all revolved around Marseille and the man in her past, a man who was not her husband.

Gerard Besson now lives life as a police commissaire, but there was a time when he lived many other lives and found a woman who stole his heart, but she died violently, her body was unrecognizable. His painful memory was re-opened when a strange woman contacts him, saying she doesn’t know how, but she knows him and he is important to her past. While he doesn’t know what to think, there is something about her that draws him like a magnet. And with that magnet comes deadly danger as they play a lethal game of cat and mouse with a group with more power than they could imagine.

Amelia’s damaged memory holds secrets, dangerous secrets and there are those who want to use her or kill her, but there will be no in between. How far will she go to unlock her past? What will she find and where does Gerard fit in?

Be prepared for intense action, intense emotions and a thriller that is more twisted than a Gordian knot. Walking the Edge by Zee Monodee is dark, filled with mystery and the crumbs left by the author lead only to the next scene. You will find yourself asking, how dark are dark ops? How much money does it take to play Chess with the lives of many? Who can be trusted and who is lying? Discover the answers to the mystery that is Amelia’s past, but come prepared to stay out of the line of fire.

If you like mystery/thrillers, spy versus spy reading and a race to the finish line with high stakes on the line, Zee Monodee has that and more in her raw and bold tale of the race for the truth.

I received this copy from Zee Monodee in exchange for my honest review.
