Publisher's Summary

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?

Plot has potential

This book might have been more compelling if it had been edited down by half. If you believe the odd amnesia that Daniel Hayes is supposed to have and if the plot had not dragged on and on, it could be good. I hung in there but it felt tedious.

A Never Ending Soap Opera

Well written; well thought out plot, but after more than three hours of tedious dialogue, I could no longer take the soap opera pace. I truly enjoy listening to a wide variety of books; as in all things, enjoy some more than others. For the first time EVER in all the 253 Audible books I’ve listened to, I skipped to the last three hours. I cut out five hours and didn’t feel like I missed or shortcut any of the intrigue. Unless you are looking for a rambling shaggy dog story, your time and money would be better spent listening to the abridge version.
