The last thing that I remember by Andrew Klavan

Headline Publishing, 2009. ISBN 9780755352999. Homelander series.
Recommended. A gripping and fascinating beginning to what becomes a very exciting and nightmarish journey for Charlie West. Well written, fast moving and strongly of the genre of good versus bad, the plot is quite mysterious to begin with, but the reader is blown along with the intricacies of the plot. In his amazingly physically terrifying state, Charlie recalls what his life was before he is captured. The people he meets and the encounters he faces auger well for a very exciting sequel. How exciting to read a modern adventure book, with all the usual personalities, both helpful and unfriendly who are very involved in the adventure. Boys will love this series. As with some books there is a page of pull out stickers.
