In what passes for an ordinary day in a psych ward, Dr. Zoe Goldman is stumped when a highly unusual case arrives. A young African American girl, found wandering the streets of Buffalo in a catatonic state, is brought in by police. No one has come forward to claim her, and all leads have been exhausted, so Zoe's treatment is the last hope to discover the girl's identity.

When drugs prove ineffective and medical science seems to be failing, Zoe takes matters into her own hands to track down Jane Doe's family and piece together their checkered history. As she unearths their secrets, she finds that monsters hide where they are least expected. And now she must solve the mystery before it is too late. Because someone wants to make sure this young girl never remembers.

Jane Doe is a young African-American girl (twelve? thirteen?) brought in by the police when she's found wandering the streets in a catatonic state. She won't speak or even make eye contact, yet appears physically unharmed. Zoe Goldman and the child psych team must discover the secret of her identity and her past before it's too late. Because someone wants to make sure she never remembers.

The character came to me as a first line: “We call her Jane, because she can't tell us her name.” She then popped up, fully formed, in a hospital bed. I could see the stony, aged look on her young face. I could feel the tenderness in the room for this young girl. In a sense, she became my mystery too. Who is Jane Doe? How did she get here, and more importantly, where will she end up?
