Captive by Claudine Dumont. Published by House of Anansi

Emma lives a solitary, unremarkable life, self medicating with alcohol to help her sleep…and forget. Then, one day she awakens from a drunken stupor to find herself alone in what appears to be a cell, or basement with only a mattress and a lamp. She has no idea how she got there or who could be behind this sick prank. It must be a prank, but as hours become days, Emma realizes this is no joke and she won’t be going home any time soon. She finds little ways to cope with her situation, things to keep ehr from going mad. But her captors are not done with her yet and Emma finds herself slowly tortured in small increments, in little ways that promise to separate her from her sanity for good. There is a seriously claustrophobic vibe to this book, which elevates the creepy level a little too high for comfort at times
