(1998) Jay R. Bonansinga, Pan, £5.99, pbk, 373pp, ISBN 0-330-34724-1


An amnesiac patient, having survived a car accident, seems to be implicated in a bizarre series of brutal murders. The detective who arrives to question him seems intent on killing him, and his only ally is a small-town private detective, Jessie Bales. But the more they uncover about ‘John Doe’s’ life, the more it seems he’s guilty...

Oh dear. A bit disappointing this. Any mystery the author may have hoped to create is blown away fairly early on by continual reference to 'The Method'. If you can’t work out what that is, then you may find surprises here but, if you’re fairly sure you do know what that is, then I’d avoid this book.
