About The Book

Can one girl help others find closure by slipping into the identities of their loved ones? Find out in this riveting sequel to The Remedy and companion to the New York Times bestselling The Program and The Treatment.

In a world before The Program…

Quinlan McKee’s job as a closer taught her to read people and situations, even losing a bit of herself to do so. But she couldn’t have guessed how her last case would bring down her entire world. Now, the only person Quinn has left is Deacon, her best friend and the love of her life. Except Deacon’s been keeping secrets of his own, so Quinn sets out alone to find Arthur Pritchard, the doctor who’s been trying to control her life.

When Quinn finds Arthur’s daughter, Virginia, she learns the truth about his motives. The good doctor believes Quinn is the first step to curing the growing epidemic of teen suicides. But how can Quinn trust someone who plays God with other people’s memories? As Quinn struggles to hold onto her sense of self through world-upending revelations, she must separate truth from lies to make the best decision for everyone’s future.
