Jenny Schultz wakes trapped in a pitch-black basement with no recollection of how she got there. With no outside stimuli, Jenny naturally turns inward and revisits her guilt-ridden past, desperate to figure out which wronged person would be angry enough, evil enough, to do this to her.
She must survive her own demons, and then time itself when she finds remnants of previous captives—a plate, a tooth, a bone. Scratched hashmarks in the stone walls around her, leave her to wonder what happens next.
What happens after six days?

“This is one HELL of macabre, psychological mystery.Owen has a terrifying talent for pushing the reader’s buttons, one right after another, until you’re trapped in the same lightless, inescapable cloak of HORROR as the main character. One of the most suspenseful books I’ve read in long time, and a stellar debut.”

“Kelli Owen has pulled off a kind of dark magic with this book and done so with an assurance rarely seen in a first novel. She’s made us care deeply about a flawed character completely alone in the dark, a scary one-character play peopled with everyone she’s close to…which is no mean feat for any magician. And the ending packs a hell of a wallop.”
