Distant Memory by Alton Gansky

Distant Memory is good, but not great. It would have been better if Gansky hadn't played by all the rules of an amnesia "suspense" book.
It's about a woman who wakes up in a strange motel and finds that she can't even remember who own name or where she last was. The entire book is about her trying to regain her memory, because she of course has something important locked up in there.
She "accidentally" meets up with a mysterious truck driver who just wants to "help". He happens to have everything she needs.
The villain is not revealed for a while, but it's refreshing to actually not have one that's an evil geneticist or a WMD maker.
The characters are little above average, and there's actually no obvious romance subplot. That's a surprise for Gansky.
The best part about the book is its ironic ending. The story is exciting and to reveal more would ruin the story. It is definitely worth your time.
3.5 stars
