Forensic psychiatrist Jo Beckett’s specialty is the psychological autopsy – an investigation into a person’s life to determine whether a death was natural, accidental, suicide, or homicide. She calls herself a deadshrinker instead of a headshrinker: The silence of her “patients” is a key part of the job’s attraction. When Jo is asked to do a psychological autopsy on a living person – one with a suspect memory who can’t be trusted to participate in his own medical care – she knows all her skills will be put to the test. Jo is called to the scene of an aircraft inbound from London to help deal with a passenger who is behaving erratically. She figures out that he’s got anteretrograde amnesia, and can’t form new memories. As his thoughts drift away like tendrils of smoke, Jo finds herself racing to save a patient who can walk and talk yet can’t help her figure out just what happened to him. For every cryptic clue he is able to drag up from his memory, Jo has to sift through a dozen nonsensical statements. Suddenly a string of clues arises – something to do with a superdeadly biological agent code-named “Slick,” missing people, and a secret partnership gone horribly wrong. Jo realizes her patient’s addled mind may hold the key to preventing something terrible from happening in her beloved San Francisco. In order to prevent it, she will have to get deeper into the life of a patient than she ever has before, hoping the truth emerges from the fog of his mind in time to save her city – and herself.

    " Not my normal type of book to read.... scientist's and goverment secrets... but it was a good book. Didnt really care for the ending... wish it would have ended better. "

    " This is one of the most high-octane mystery/thrillers that I have read in awhile. I'm really liking this series in general, but this particular episode had a lot at stake. "

    " I thought this was a fun crime novel where science fiction becomes real. Yes, it gets a bit out there at the end. Still, a fun read. "

    " Absolutely terrible. The story was all over the place. The different arcs were completely disjointed, making it hard to even realize that the plot line had shifted from one to the next to the next. So bad, I just got bored with attempting to follow along, let alone understand what the heck was going on. I really enjoyed Gardiner's first book. This one ... not so much. "
