The only sign of life for miles is an empty BMW. Inside the expensive car he finds clothes that fit perfectly, shoes for his tattered feet, a Rolex, and an auto registration in the name of Daniel Hayes, resident of Malibu, California.

None of it is familiar.

How did he get here? Who is he? Who was he?

While he searches for answers, the world searches for him—beginning with the cops that kick in the door of his dingy motel with guns drawn. Lost and alone, the man who might be Daniel Hayes flees into the night. All he remembers is a woman’s face, so he sets off for the only place he might find her. The fantasy of her becomes his home, his world, his hope. And maybe, just maybe, the way back to himself.

But that raises the most chilling question of all: What will he find when he gets there?

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Mary Beth | 2/13/2014

    " This book is getting so much summer-buzz, I wanted to read it before I encountered a spoiler. It sure kept me reading but I'm clearly in the minority by not being completely blown away by it. It was fun but the ending left me a little "Huh" (both in the confused sense and in the underwhelmed sense). It was okay and I enjoyed watching the mystery unfold but the pay off just wasn't really there for me. "

    " It's been a while since I read a good ol' mystery, so I enjoyed returning to this genre. The beginning was a bit fractured and at times confusing, but in hindsight that wa actually a clever portrayal of the life state of Daniel Hayes! When the story takes a big twist in the middle, I couldn't put it down. Marcus Sakey had several surprise turns at the end which tied up all loose ends. This was a quick, entertaining summer read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Diane S. | 1/17/2014

    " A man wakes up naked on a beach and doesn't remember where he is or how he got there. From there it is all thrills and chills as he attempts to find out what happened to him and where he belongs. Plenty of twists and turns, with some very good characters and some not so nice people. Sakey's writing is as always suspenseful and he's from Chicago. "
