The New York Times #1 bestselling series reissued for a whole new generation of readers! He was youngmaybe twenty or soand he must once have been a good-looking kid. Kinsey could see that. But now his body was covered in scars, his face half-collapsed. It saddened Kinsey and made her curious. She could see he was in a lot of pain. But for three weeks, as Kinsey had watched him doggedly working out at the local gym, putting himself through a grueling exercise routine, he never spoke. Then one Monday morning, when there was no one else in the gym, Bobby Callahan approached her. His story was hard to credit: a murderous assault by a tailgating car on a lonely rural road, a roadside smash into a canyon four hundred feet below, his Porsche a bare ruin, his best friend dead. The doctors had managed to put his body back together againhis mother's money had seen to that. But they couldn't restore the huge chunks of memory wiped out by the crash. Bobby knew someone had tried to kill him, but he didn't know why. He knew he had the key to something that made him dangerous to the killer, but he didn't know what it was. And he sensed that someone was still out there, ready to pounce at the first sign his memory was coming back. He'd been to the cops, but they'd shrugged off his story. His family thought he had a screw loose. He wanted to hire Kinsey. Three days later, Bobby Callahan was dead. Kinsey Millhone never welshed a deal. She'd been hired to stop a killing. Now she'd find the killer.
