Anterograde amnesia means that the afflicted can no longer form new memories and cannot retain any new information for longer than a few minutes. Corporate Security officer Ian Kanan suffers from it and forensic psychiatrist Jo Beckett is determined to find out why. The “why” is the question that takes the reader on the chase. It is definitely for fans of the action genre because at times the plot and action take a turn towards the implausible and the story is plot driven rather than character driven. Part techno thriller and part medical thriller, with just enough twists, turns and romance thrown in the round it out into a good read.
