Just for a kick – getting back to my good old suspense novels. I enjoyed You’re Next by Hurwitz well enough, and this sounded good. Based on self-select (not a strong suit) I went for it. Another positive thing is that Scott Brick narrates and this is suspense – perfect for him.
Drew Danner, a writer of mystery novels, wakes up in the hospital with no memory of how he got there. He finds out he’s been arrested for the murder of his ex- fiancé, but remembers nothing about it.
