Another compelling read from the author of The Death List and The Soul Collector. Crime writer Matt Wells is back and in trouble once again, not knowing how or why he has ended up being accused of three gruesome murders. Paul Johnston really does get better and better and this creepy, gory, twisted tale is one to really keep you gripped.
Crime writer Matt Wells could never have conjured a plot this twisted. A secretive militia running brainwashing experiments in a remote location have made him a subject. He knows they have been feeding him instructions, but why? Taunted by maddening snatches of a life he can't trust as his own - including memories of a woman he feels he should remember - Matt's accused of three gruesome murders. On the run from his kidnappers and the law, Matt must piece everything together - before it's too late.
