When a man is found on a Norfolk beach, drifting in and out of consciousness, with no identification and unable to speak, interest in him is sparked immediately. From the hospital staff who find themselves inexplicably drawn to him; to international medical experts who are baffled by him; to the nationalpress who call him Mr Nobody; everyone wants answers. Who is this man? And what happened to him?
Neuropsychiatrist Dr Emma Lewis is asked to assess the patient. This is her field of expertise, this is the chance she’s been waiting for and this case could make her name known across the world. But therein lies the danger. Emma left this same small town in Norfolk fourteen years ago and has taken great pains to cover all traces of her past since then.
But now something – or someone – is calling her back. And the more time she spends with her patient, the more alarmed she becomes.
Has she walked into danger?
I adored Something In The Water so I leapt into Mr Nobody with huge anticipation and it delivered on every level for me – tense and twisted, a cleverly unfolding plot, a hint of spookiness and beautifully written.
A man is found on a Norfolk beach. He doesn’t know who he is or what happened but he knows he has to find her. But find who? Enter Dr Emma Lewis, a specialist in the fugue field, a dark past haunting her return to her childhood county. Can she find the truth?
This is as twisted as you like and so pacy even as it is considered and compelling. As events unfold it is utterly gripping and utterly baffling, a delightfully intelligent mystery that defies expectation many times.
The last few chapters are rock and roll as everything comes to a head and the truth is revealed, the setting is immersive and haunting throughout and this is one of those books that sends you down the proverbial rabbit hole. Anyone for croquet?
Excellent. I adored it. Highly Recommended.
