"Turbo paced and tightly written, this book will leave you breathless" according to Jackie

The Two Deaths of Daniel Hayes
A man wakes up naked and cold, half-drowned on an abandoned beach. The only sign of life for miles is an empty BMW. Inside the expensive car he finds clothes that fit perfectly, shoes for his tattered feet, a Rolex, and a bank envelope stuffed with cash and an auto registration in the name of Daniel Hayes, resident of Malibu, California.

None of it is familiar.

What is he doing here? How did he get into the ocean? Is he Daniel Hayes, and if so, why doesn't he remember? While he searches for answers, the world searches for him-beginning with the police that kick in the door of his dingy motel, with guns drawn. Lost, alone, and on the run, the man who might be Daniel Hayes flees into the night.

All he remembers is a woman's face, so he sets off for the only place he might find her. The fantasy of her becomes his home, his world, his hope. And maybe, just maybe, the way back to himself.
But that raises the most chilling question of all: What will he find when he gets there?

Jackie says:
"Forget doing anything but reading this book, because once you start, you aren't going to want to let it go. Turbo paced and tightly written, this book will leave you breathless.

It begins with a man waking up on a freezing beach, naked and sore. He does not remember his name, or where he is, or how he came to be there, or why. Clues begin to show up--the unlocked car in the desolate beach parking lot that has clothes and shoes that perfectly fit him, trash in the car showing evidence of a long road trip...and a gun the glove box. The more clues he finds, the deeper the mystery becomes. I don't want to spoil any of it--it's too much fun to fall into the story on your own. All I will tell you is that this is an excellent, excellent read!"
