"A brainy, twisty, sometimes twisted mystery."—Gillian Flynn, author of Gone Girl A man wakes up naked and cold, half-drowned on an abandoned beach... 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? While he searches for answers, the world searches for him—beginning with the cops who kick in the door of his dingy motel with drawn guns. All he remembers is a woman's face, so he leaves town in search of her in hopes of uncovering his true identity. But that raises the most chilling question of all... What will he find when he gets there? Praise for Marcus Sakey "Truly excellent. Like vintage Elmore Leonard crossed with classic Dennis Lehane."—Lee Child, author of A Wanted Man and Never Go Back "An authentic, original new voice."—George Pelecanos, author of The Double and What it Was "The reigning prince of crime fiction."—Chicago Tribune "The electric jolt American crime fiction needs."—Dennis Lehane "Crime drama for the 21st century."—National Public Radio "One of the hottest young crime writers in the country."—The Oregonian "Snappy"—Entertainment Weekly Marcus Sakey is the author of Brilliance, The Amateurs, Good People, The Two Deaths of Daniel Hayes, and other novels and stories.

"Waking up half-drowned on an abandoned beach with no memory of who he is, a naked man stumbles across a silver BMW. The Bimmer contains clothes, cash, a gun, and registration in the name of Daniel Hayes, and so "Daniel" takes off for a cheap motel, where he learns he's in Maine and dreams of a television actress. But there's a cop on his trail -- has he done something, or has Daniel? As he heads to L.A. (sure that answers await him there), Daniel ("Daniel"?) struggles to figure out who he is, why he's in trouble, and how to get himself out of it, with only random memories to help him out. We can't say much more without giving it away, but the suspense is so intense that it's "a possible threat to readers' cardiac health," says Library Journal."
