Frank wakes up in a hospital bed with no memory of the last six years of his life. He struggles to remember his daughter and wife, both of whom have disappeared in the past year. While in the hospital his wife’s sister, Josephine, begins encouraging him to remember what happened to his wife the day she vanished.
The more his wife’s relatives push him the more the pieces of his past begin to fall into place. He knows he had a partner but can’t remember his name. He also knows that his wife’s family is dangerous but he doesn’t know how he knows that. Things go from bad to worse when an anonymous blackmailer tells Frank that he has proof he killed his wife, Kelly.
Frank slowly begins piecing the last six years of his life together with the help of Marilyn, the woman who claims to be his lover. He recalls with certainty that his wife’s family is a group of kidnapping, serial killers. They will stop at nothing to find Kelly’s body, dead or alive. Frank needs to remember exactly what happened to Kelly before it’s too late.
At the beginning of this book I was very confused by the characters. There are so many of them and Frank keeps flashing from the present into the past so it’s hard to keep track of everyone. Once I was into the book about 50 pages I had all the characters sorted out and it was much easier to get into the story.
I liked the idea behind the book but I felt like it took too long to get anywhere. Many of the stories were redundant or unnecessary. Toward the end everything was finally coming together and I felt like there was going to be a great ending…and then the book just ended. It was disappointing and I wish the book had a powerful ending to it.
I give this book 2 1/2 out of 5 stars. This post linked to: Saturday Situation
