For fifteen years Amy Stevenson has been locked in a coma after being found unconscious after a brutal attack. Forgotten in a medical facility and locked in the memories of that fateful day the young woman harbors information that she hasn't been able to share with anyone because of her condition.

Alex Dale is a reporter who has been on a downward spiral brought on by alcohol. She sees the opportunity here to resurrect her career with a story about cold cases and vegetative victims like Amy. Once she becomes aware of the woman's tragic situation, not only does the reporter become determined to reopen the investigation, but she's also hoping to find her own salvation by telling Amy's story and exposing the attacker.

A dangerous project fraught with numerous pitfalls and alternating between perspectives and time periods, Try Not to Breathe is a fast moving psychological thriller with plenty of unexpected twists and turns.
