He wowed critics with his Frank Corso and Leo Waterman series, catapulting to the upper ranks of contemporary crime writers with each riveting new thriller. Now, G.M. Ford is back with a brand-new book, his first stand-alone novel, featuring a man with no name, no past—and at the center of a conspiracy so pervasive he's forced to run from the only home he's ever known—straight into the abyss—in his search for truth. . . .
Discovered lying near death in a railroad car, his body broken, his mind destroyed, Paul Hardy has spent the past seven years living in a group home for disabled adults, his identity and his past lost—seemingly forever. Then, after a horrific car accident, he awakens a new man, his face reconstructed, and his mind shadowy with memory. With only a name and a vaguely remembered scene to guide him, he goes on a cross-country quest to find out who he really is. But his search for the truth makes a lot of people uncomfortable—from the DA's office to the highest levels of government. Soon Paul is being tailed by an army of pursuers as he finds himself at the center of a government cover-up that has already claimed too many innocent lives—and the numbers are mounting. It's the kind of thing that could make even a man on the outskirts of society feel the pull of justice. A justice that might be worth killing for. Or dying for . . .

Ford, the author of the Frank Corso mysteries (Fury, etc.) and the Leo Waterman PI series (Cast in Stone, etc.), stumbles in his first stand-alone. Paul Hardy, who was found near death in a railroad car seven years earlier, has spent the time since in a home for the disabled in Washington State. During that time he has not spoken or responded to anything or anyone. Then one day, he rushes into the street to save a female patient in an out-of-control wheelchair. Run over by a car, he later awakens in the hospital with a new face. But the change is not merely cosmetic: he's someone entirely other, and he's sure his name is not Paul Hardy. Clinging to a barely remembered phrase, he sets out on a cross-country hunt to discover his real identity. Alas, after this promising setup, the novel sputters out in conventional—and predictable—melodrama, as Hardy finds himself at the center of a vast conspiracy hatched by people in high places who apparently want him dead. Ford fans will hope for a return to form with his next book. (Feb.)
