One of our Books of the Year 2015.
September 2015 Book of the Month.
There is a confusing, almost rambling feel to this thriller that really keeps you on your toes. We are introduced to our charismatic hero Solomon Creed as he runs barefoot and skimpily dressed from an air crash in Arizona. With memory loss but a burning knowledge that he must somehow save this small town, he stumbles upon a drug-related plot, a host of ‘baddies’ and a family mystery. It ends with a strange twist, that is improbable and intriguing and I am sure it will be developed in future volumes, for this starts a series. It is hugely enjoyable. ~ Sarah Broadhurst
HIS PAST IS UNKNOWN. HIS FUTURE UNWRITTEN. WHO IS SOLOMON CREED? The first in an electrifying new thriller series from Sunday Times bestselling author, Simon Toyne. Perfect for fans of Lee Child, and I AM PILGRIM, by Terry Hayes. A plane crashes in the Arizona desert. One lone figure emerges alive from the wreckage. He has no memory of his past, and no idea of his future. He only knows he must save a man. But how do you save someone who is already dead?
