A man wakes up naked and cold, half-drowned on a deserted beach. Nearby is an empty BMW. Inside he finds clothes that fit perfectly, shoes for his feet, a Rolex, and a bank envelope stuffed with cash and an auto registration in the name of Daniel Hayes, 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?

"Waking up half-drowned on an abandoned beach with no memory of who he is, a naked man stumbles across a silver BMW. The Bimmer contains clothes, cash, a gun, and registration in the name of Daniel Hayes, and so "Daniel" takes off for a cheap motel, where he learns he's in Maine and dreams of a television actress. But there's a cop on his trail -- has he done something, or has Daniel? As he heads to L.A. (sure that answers await him there), Daniel ("Daniel"?) struggles to figure out who he is, why he's in trouble, and how to get himself out of it, with only random memories to help him out. We can't say much more without giving it away, but the suspense is so intense that it's "a possible threat to readers' cardiac health," says Library Journal."
