This is a dark disturbing violent book with intense character development and a few surprising plot twists. Amnesia is a common device but used here becomes a portal to hell. Continuing with characters established in his first book ‘Suspect’ the author now focuses on the detective from that novel who wakes up in a river having had an assassins bullet pass through his leg. His amnesia prevents him from telling how and why he got there. There is an empty boat doused in human blood. As his memory returns, aspects of what he was doing are revealed. It is a grim story involving child abduction, the Russian mafia, missing ransom, and characters whose lives are surrounded by darkness. The book is fast paced, intense and in a ‘Beaking Bad’ sort of way amazing for its uncompromisingly bleak atmosphere. Yet . . . it is extremely well written and entertaining in a perverse sort of way.

Trspears42 There is also Shatter, The Night Ferry, and Suspect, which seems to be the first in the series. Bear in mind that this is a British book, and the cop-talk is a little different.

Patrick Gibson Thanks. I think I will start with Suspect. I am getting a little tired of picking up an interesting looking book only to discover it is #4,821 in a series. Happens to me a lot in the Science Fiction section. I look forwart to Lost, but will put it in its place.
