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 a bank envelope stuffed with cash and an auto registration in the name of Daniel Hayes, resident of Malibu, California. None of it is familiar. What is he doing here? How did he get into the ocean? Is he Daniel Hayes, and if so, why doesn't he remember? While he searches for answers, the world searches for him - beginning with the police that kick in the door of his dingy motel, with guns drawn. Lost, alone, and on the run, 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 questions of all: What will he find when he gets there? "The new reigning prince of crime fiction." -Chicago Tribune "This is how immortality gets started." -CBS Sunday Morning "A stylish writer who excels at creating characters so real that they walk right off the page and into your life." -Associated Press

Professional reviews

"Christopher Lane's melodic voice, perfect pacing, and acting talent are the icing on the cake of this smart, suspenseful audio feast. The plot is full of more twists and turns than the Pacific Coast Highway. Relying on a name found in a car after pulling himself naked out of the ocean, a man with amnesia tries to solve the mystery of his identity and why he is being sought by the authorities regarding the death of his wife, a woman he cannot remember but knows he loved. This is a real audio treat--clever, well done, full of interesting characters you admire or loathe, all wrapped up in a beautifully presented audio package. A.C.P.
