Hollywood movie star Goldie Saint Helen comes out of a coma after a car accident with an altered identity. She now believes she is a hippie detective living in the Sixties, hired to find a missing teenage girl who is about to end up a guinea pig in a CIA drug experiment.
Goldie also thinks screenwriter Blake Deco, her husband, is an intern at her detective agency. For the time being, Blake plays along as advised by the hospital until she recovers her memory.
However, sinister plotters think it is better that Goldie does not wake up from her fantasy— and they have their reasons.
The couple finds themselves embroiled in a dangerous situation. Blake must use his past military skills as he raced against the clock to save his wife before she loses her mind forever.

Praise For…

"Screenwriter Blake Deco’s life is upended when his Hollywood movie-star wife, Goldie Saint Helen, comes out of a coma after a car accident with a makeshift identity. Her lawyers see her condition as an opportunity to swindle her. Far Out is a standalone thriller but the key characters were recast from another novel, Gun Kiss." —Maryse's Book Blog.
