Stephen Lewis, a research scientist from England, awakes in a Miami hospital after several days in a coma. He has no idea who he is or why he is in Miami. As parts of his memory start to return, he recalls being beaten in an alley while trying to help a strange woman in trouble. When he also remembers his name and the fact that he flew down to Miami with his wife, his doctor promises to try to find her.
As the story progresses and his memories slowly return, he is horrified to find that nobody he knows seems to recognize him, and another man is claiming to be Stephen Lewis. The police are less than helpful, and he attempts to find the woman he rescued, whom he hopes has some answers.
To share anymore might spoil the suspense, so I will stop here and tell you that Green took a plot that is somewhat common and definitely made it his own. It is a bit far-fetched in parts, and one has to just accept some unlikely truths, but if you can just enjoy it as fiction, it is a worthwhile read. His descriptions are strong and his dialogue is engaging. The reader can’t help but cheer on this protagonist who is caught in a world of drug trafficking, murder and a conspiracy that might alter his life forever.
