Two Deaths of Daniel Hayes by Marcus Sakey, 390 pages, read by Claudia, on 11/12/2012

I discovered this book in an online interview with Gillian Flynn….the interviewer asked her to list the best books she had read so far in 2012.  This title topped her list, and did not disappoint!  Flynn is an amazing writer in her own right and Marcus Sakey looks like an author to watch as well.

A man wakes up naked and cold, half-drowned on an abandoned beach in Maine of all places…
The only sign of life for miles is an empty BMW. Inside the expensive car he finds clothes that fit perfectly, shoes for his tattered feet, a Rolex, and an auto registration in the name of Daniel Hayes, resident of Malibu, California.
None of it is the least bit familiar. How did he get here? Who is he? While he searches for answers, he is being chased to down too, but has no idea beginning with the cops who kick in the door of his run-down motel with drawn guns. All he remembers is a woman’s face and that face is the star of a very popular television show…  he leaves Maine for California in search of this strangely familiar face in hopes of uncovering his true identity. But that raises the most chilling question of all…
What will he find when he gets there?
