How much will Julian sacrifice to find the truth?
As he approaches the corner of Wendt and Brewster, Julian Barnes makes a bet with fate: if he can drive through the intersection without stopping, it will be a sign that he won’t lose Julia, the woman he loves.
But instead Julian wakes up in a hospital, his body shattered from a car accident he can’t remember. The prominent neurosurgeon who broadsided him swears his light was green. An eyewitness disagrees. A woman is dead, and the surgeon is accused of manslaughter.
A stranger warns Julian that if his memory returns and he tells anyone what really happened, Julia will die, too.
What don’t they want him to remember? Julian knows he got in the car an hour before the accident, on his way to see Julia. But then…nothing.
Why was he driving away from Julia’s apartment when the car hit him?
What did he see just before the impact?
Julian bears the weight of not knowing. His quest will take him to places he never expected, and to stories he never wanted to hear.
This book kept me guessing till the very end and boy, what a wild adventure that was!
An accident. That’s all it took to turn Julian’s life into a rather dangerous game of life and death; one wrong move and he’s doomed!
I loved how the story jumps right into the uncharted depths of the mystery which engages the reader right away. The story is beautifully-written and the characters are all quite interesting. The fact that it all starts with the main character not remembering some crucial information and then having people not wanting him to remember it, is rather nerve-racking but it also adds a very nice edge to the story. The mystery, the secrets, and the revelations were all very well-thought of and I very much enjoyed how, towards the end, everything came back together to finally make sense.
I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a good mystery to keep them on the edge till the very end. So happy reading!
I would like to thank NetGalley, the publishers, and the author for providing me with a Copy of this book.
