What would you do if you suddenly woke up and found yourself in a state mental institution that looked more like a prison than a hospital? Then when you demanded to know why you were being held against your will, no one in the place would give you a straight answer? And on top of this, you have a serious case of amnesia? Especially when you are asked to recount any details about Hampton Road, a desolate country road that in your present state of mind seems to have no beginning and no end?
This is only part of your reason for despairing. The couple times your mother has visited you, she acts like she doesn't recognize you. When you turn to your girlfriend for support, she appears frightened over your seemingly odd behavior. And perhaps more puzzling than anything else, your best friend seems to have disappeared into the thin air.
Was it something you did? The sad thing is, you don't really remember. A large part of you has been cut away, and what remains is knotted up inside you into a tight ball of confusion and dread.
Welcome to the disturbing world of the main character, a young man who has lost everything, except maybe his sense of humor. When he reflects on the absurdity of his tragic situation, he has a choice. He can either despair or have hope. Hope means that the nightmare of Hampton Road is no more real than his present fantasies.
This is a book that will keep you flipping the pages as the mystery unfolds through the perspective of three characters whose lives converge on the fateful night when the world as they knew it ended.
For the protagonist to end his torment, he must try to piece together the broken trilogy of love and friendship that once gave his life meaning.
