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?
That’s the setup for The Two Deaths of Daniel Hayes by Marcus Sakey, which will be released on June 9th. Intrigued? You should be. I’m about halfway through the book and I promise you it is every bit as exciting as it sounds. You know what else is exciting?
