We've had our fair share of "waking up without a memory" stories here at my shelf, of course. Ludlum's The Bourne Identity, Follett's Code to Zero and, more recently, Doug Richards Mind's Eye. This title doesn't quite fit the mould, as the memory loss is a gap rather than the guy's life, but the technique is there.

The story was superbly spun, and even though we know a little of the background of the technology from Soutter's previous, it's a refreshing enough take on the first book that we want

Kevin Brooks is a teacher. He used to be a computer programmer for a NY stock broker, but he awoke one day to find he's now a math and computer science teacher at an exclusive boy's school in Manhattan. He also owns a penthouse apartment and has a butler. He has no memory of how any of that happened, but he does know math and he knows computers and he finds he makes an excellent teacher.
But Kevin can't sleep at night and he keeps hearing voices in his head telling him he needs to get ready. Read

Kevin wakes up and can't seem to remember anything that has happened over the last three months. Yet somehow he finds himself in a new teaching job with a new elegant apartment. His body is capable of things he can't imagine and he feels like he has to get ready for something. The only problem is that he doesn't know what that is.

This book was a little too sci-fi for me. It wasn't a bad read, but it seemed like the author spend too much time "getting ready" and not much time on the big ending.

I am kind of wishy washy on this book. It started out and I thought it was really interesting, but then it got boring, then interesting, then boring, and so on. I did like the ending however so it ended on a high which is good. It was a good idea, but some of the technical stuff I feel had bad examples. So it didn't always make the most sense. And the bad guy by the end...I don't know. It was an alright book.

'Undetectable' is a great read. The storyline was awesome. I was hooked from the beginning. The way this story played out was full of mystery, action and suspense. A great thriller. This is not your typical guy-loses-memory and go all bad-ass on the bad people. This book is well written. I loved the characters. Quite a few surprises were in store for me. I loved it. Definitely a great add to your tbr list. Recommended read.

I'd give it 3.5 stars. The book was really slow at first while the near hysteria/psychosis of the main character was established. But once the plot began to flesh out it developed nicely. One criticism is the villian really had a very limited role and background for being the villian.

Overall a nicely paced action thriller after the first 10-15% of the book.

Book is good especially details about guns and NP hard concepts. Use of NP hard for building up the plot was quite interesting. But still there was missing something. Story was too much stretched with very less details.
People in field of Computer science would surely find this book enjoyable.

Interesting Premise Well Carried Out

Because the author needed to establish the characters, backstory and subplots, the book was a little slow starting. After the first quarter, the puzzle kept me going, then the main plot kicked in and made it vital to me to finish.

I liked the plot, the writing style and although some things are just a tiny bit a stretch, but it was good overall. I read this book in one sitting!
