Une jeune femme, belle et fragile, un luxueux hôtel hollywoodien et un dangereux mélange d'alcools forts et de médicaments...
Quand Eliza Fontaine, jeune auteure à succès, se réveille dans une chambre d'hôpital, il lui suffit d'un regard à ses proches pour comprendre qu'on la soupçonne d'une nouvelle tentative de suicide.

Ses souvenirs sont flous, sa mémoire se dérobe, mais elle se souvient d'une voix, d'un rire...
Uniquement armée du roman qu'elle vient de terminer, et dans lequel semblent se mêler fiction et réalité, la jeune femme part à la recherche de ce qui s'est réellement passé.
Car, s'il y a une chose dont Eliza est sûre, c'est qu'elle n'a pas sauté dans cette piscine. Quelqu'un a tenté de la tuer.
