Have all of us got repressed memories? Do we all invent alternate realities that somehow allow us to cope? If we do, how would we know?

A man wakes up inside of a car one cold, wintery morning. He has no idea who he is. He has no idea where he’s from. He has no idea what he’s doing there. All he has is a journal in the glove compartment which provides some clues as to who he is. He is left with just his wits and this journal to help him bring together the pieces of his past so he can continue on to his future.

I’ve always loved David Staniforth’s work. Many writers have one genre that they stick to and can handle well. David has that rare ability to traverse through multiple genres and write all of them exquisitely. This is the second thriller I have read that he’s written, and the suspense blew me away! Right from the beginning the book grabs your attention and doesn’t let go until the very last page. I found myself riveted by the mystery of not only Tom’s past, but of Penny’s as well. That was the other aspect of the story that I absolutely loved. The characters (all of them, not just Tom) were really well rounded and complex. It made for such an intriguing read.

As always, it was an extreme pleasure to read Mr. Staniforth’s work, and I look forward to many more amazing books in the future!

I received a free copy of this book in return for my honest review. Thanks David! 🙂
