Publisher's Write-Up

Two blood-spattered strangers awake locked in the trunk of a car - with a murdered cop and the smoking gun. Aside from raging headaches and no idea what has happened they appear to have nothing in common.

Troy thinks it’s 2001 and he’s still a combat surgeon fighting terrorists in Afghanistan.

Emmy believes it’s 2002 and she’s still grifting a living from the streets of L.A.

Are they archenemies or co-conspirators? Lovers or friends? What the hell are they doing in the Caribbean? And why is a Croatian assassin determined to kill them? The only thing they do know for certain is that they’ll be spending the rest of their lives in prison if the police catch them before they uncover the truth.

Written by the critically acclaimed author of Coercion and Betrayal, Flash is the story of four lives changed by desperation and one devious invention. It’s The Bourne Identity meets The Firm.

'Not a moment goes by till the end of the book when readers won’t be shocked, surprised and delightfully entertained.'

Rating 8/10
The opening scene of this thriller is one of the most memorable and intriguing that I have read in a while. Imagine waking up in the boot of a car with a dead body and no idea of how you got there. Imagine then if you were inside the car with no memory of how you got there, would you open the boot if you could hear someone beseeching you from the inside?

I liked the premise of the story, the pace and the complexity of the plot. The characters are well drawn and Tigner has an ability to make his narrative so well described that you see the action unfolding in your minds’ eye. You will be intrigued by the man and the woman who start with no name and no idea of what is going on, and you root for them as you are drawn into their investigation into what happened in the period of time for which they have no memory. Following a Memento-esque discovery, they embark upon a dangerous trail which may or may not be of their own volition or they may be lead along a path by some sinister character whose motives are yet unexposed. It turns out that their memories are not the only ones which have been altered, although the pattern is obscured at first, they set out to figure out what has happened to them and along the way they find that there is more at stake for more people than might at first be apparent.

Whilst I agree that the idea of memory manipulation might seem a little Men in Black science fiction, this is cleverly done and does not leave you thinking about this plot line to the extent that it affects your enjoyment of the story. This really is a cracking story, and you will keep turning the pages to find out what is going to happen next. I was lucky enough to read it whilst not at work, otherwise this is the kind of book to stay awake for ‘just a few more pages’. It will stop you from sleeping and you will be glad of it.
