Vincent Ruiz is lucky to be alive. A bullet in the leg, another through the hand, he is discovered clinging to a buoy in the River Thames, losing blood and consciousness fast. It takes six days for him to come out of his coma and, when he does, his nightmare is only just beginning. Because Vincent has no recollection of what happened and nobody believes him. A mile away from his body, a boat was found covered in blood... Vincent's and that of three others. Forensics say at least one of them must be dead. Vincent, a police detective, had signed his service pistol out of the station armoury, despite being on leave. Many murder suspects fake amnesia and the investigating team are not sure this case is any different. The only clue is a picture in his pocket, a photograph of a young girl, Mickey Carlyle, who disappeared three years ago. And though Mickey is presumed dead, Vincent has the nagging doubt that she is alive and in terrible danger.



"This is high-energy drama that's deftly done, with plenty of guessing games and nail-biting tension full of fine characterisation, brilliantly researched detail and subtle humour." (Mirror)
"Credible characters and a clever plot make an absorbing read by a welcome new name in the genre." (Sunday Telegraph)
"A highly effective thriller....A gripper." (Literary Review)

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

Am Anfang habe ich es als etwas schwergängig empfunden, doch dann nahm die Geschichte Fahrt auf und es wurde spannend. Es bleibt bis zum Ende schwer durchschaubar, was Spaß beim Mitraten bringt. Der Sprecher erzählt für mein Empfinden jedoch etwas langweilig.
