Publisher's Summary

What if you couldn't remember the worst thing you'd ever done?

When Jed Allen wakes up at a desk in New York City, he has no idea who he is. The evidence around him shows he's a hotshot architect, and a photo in his wallet reveals he has a beautiful girlfriend named Cassie. But when he goes home to seek her help, Cassie is nowhere to be found.

Self-penned notes remind Jed that he's been suffering bouts of amnesia since a car crash nine months ago. As he plays private detective with the facts of his own life, he discovers more and more about his character. But when he finds a bloodied dress in the trunk of his car, amid news reports of a serial killer abducting women from Central Park, Jed has to confront the possibility that his lost memories could contain the darkest secrets imaginable...

Nobody around him has the answers to his questions. Who is the killer? And where has Cassie gone?

A bit predictable...

I have listened to and enjoyed all of Keith Houghton's book, especially the Gabe Quinn series. I personally wish he would continue that series.
Of all his books I have to say this one is probably my least favorite. It's not a bad story but it is predictable. The prologue sets up the book with the protagonist stalking his "girlfriend ". He causes a car accident which causes him to have amnesia, and he witnesses a horrific accident that must have caused her death. Time goes by and he suffers from a form of amnesia that comes and goes. Meanwhile there's a serial killer out there and he gets arrested for the crimes. There's a lot in between , this is the short version. Anyway, did he do it or is he being set up since he doesn't know if he did it or not. But in the meanwhile he's still looking for his girlfriend...
The end of the epilogue is actually quite funny if not a little ominous.

Good book, barely okay narration..



This was a weird and crazy story and I just kept waiting to see what was going to happen next. Was Jed and Cassie’s relationship real? Was he a stalker? Was he a serial killer? His “intermittent amnesia” made his life one big question. After learning things about the “old” Jed I can see why he wouldn’t like him. Wow! What a piece of work the old Jed was. I didn’t like him either. He was a drinker and a coke head, so what was there to like?

And the ending was kind of sucky. I mean it all worked out for Jed and Sarah but it would have been nice if the author hadn’t given the impression that Jed wasn’t through with his old ways. One second I was happy for Jed and Sarah and the next I just wanted her to dump his butt. Very disappointing.

There was no sex and the F-bomb was not used.

Oh, this was written in the first person but it would have been better in the third person.

As to the narration: Pete Simonelli (aka Sebastian York) continues to suck at women’s voices. He doesn’t even try so don’t let the 5 star reviews fool you. He has a great reading voice and his men’s voices are wonderful but his emotions are non-existent and his women sound just like men.

Good book

This the kind of story that will grab your attention from the start. The ending was good and left you thinking "I knew it! "

Good mread

If you like mystery here is a good one. It is confusing at first but keep your mind open. I would have preferred to give 4.5 instead of 5 but that's the only thing. I figured out the quandary as you most likely will but the end is great.

This was a struggle to get through. Good narration

Wow I am glad this book is over. It was a struggle to get through. It just kind of kept you hanging on and on and on. Never getting any answers until the very end and was very abrupt.

I don't even know if I liked Jed Allen. There was absolutely no character development with any characters at all. It seemed all over the place and had some really dumb moments. Like if you have amnesia and want to know who you are and where you live look at your drivers license. Of course it is written in the very beginning that he didn't even think to do that. And finally when he was told at the end of the book to look at his license he did. DUH.................

No normal questions being asked either by Jed. This was a complete waste of time really. I was glad it ended. I am also glad this was a free read free listen with my KU. Good thing. I think the only reason I finished it was because I really wanted to know if this author would get any better. Nope he didn't.

As for the narration Pete Simonelli a/k/a Sebastian York. So yes you get a sexy voice, But all the characters sound the same.

Confusing

I found this book troubling. I found I was unable to keep up with who the characters were. As an older person, with a poor memory, it was not a good theme for me.

Thoroughly this book

Many books these days jumps from one scenario to another. This book does too but you can actually keep up with it with audible readings.
