This is one of those books that I somehow missed years ago. I had it on my shelf but I never got around to reading it. Which is strange, because you could almost argue that it redefined the adventure genre.

You probably know the story: man wakes up with no memory, finds out he’s a killer, but doesn’t know if he’s a good guy or a bad guy.

It’s a fun read. The plot is pretty convoluted at times…names dropped once are expected to be remembered 200 pages later. And some of the dialogue…a lot of people standing around talking sometimes.

But the story is great. And I think that’s why this book works so well. The story is tight, compelling, and moves very quickly.
