Review-A-Day

"The Two Deaths of Daniel Hayes, the latest thriller by Marcus Sakey, aspires to be many things: a contemplation of the aftermath of a traumatic event (a 'dissociative fugue'), a cat-and-mouse game between an extraordinarily evil villain and two (not particularly sympathetic) protagonists, both caught up in circumstances they don't always comprehend, and a love story of ever-shifting dimensions." Peter Handel, The Oregonian (Read the entire Oregonaian review)

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Marcus Sakey returns with his most ambitious novel, a captivating story of love and memory, where the only thing more frightening than the questions are the answers. A man wakes up naked and cold, half-drowned on an abandoned beach. 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 a bank envelope stuffed with cash and an auto registration in the name of Daniel Hayes, resident of Malibu, California.

None of it is familiar.

What is he doing here? How did he get into the ocean? Is he Daniel Hayes, and if so, why doesn't he remember? While he searches for answers, the world searches for him-beginning with the police that kick in the door of his dingy motel, with guns drawn. Lost, alone, and on the run, the man who might be Daniel Hayes flees into the night.

All he remembers is a woman's face, so he sets off for the only place he might find her. The fantasy of her becomes his home, his world, his hope. And maybe, just maybe, the way back to himself.

But that raises the most chilling question of all: What will he find when he gets there?

About the Author

"The Two Deaths of Daniel Hayes confirms Marcus Sakey's place as one of our best storytellers. This is a tight, intuitive and terrific read."

-New York Times bestseller Michael Connelly

"A brainy, twisty, sometimes twisted mystery, The Two Deaths of Daniel Hayes is part dazzling California noir, part dark American road trip, part sly psychological thriller-and entirely ingenious."

-New York Times bestseller Gillian Flynn

Marcus Sakey's latest novel doesn't read like your typical thriller. While it has the suspense, plot twists, and excitement in spades, Sakey's writing is more complex and clearer. It's a psychological drama with the excitement and action of a thriller.

It opens with Daniel Hayes, wet and naked on a beach in Maine. He comes across clues to what seems to be his life, but he everything is hazy and uncertain. He thinks he owns the BMW, that his name is Daniel Hayes, he dreams of this beautiful woman who he also sees on TV. The only thing that seems real to him is his connection to this actress/soap opera character and so he travels across the U.S. to California to find this woman. As he slowly realizes which of his memories are real, he tries to piece together what his life had been, what he might have done, and what dangers he faces. But his loss of memory hasn't put the world on hold - the dangers that surrounded him, that had caused him to attempt suicide in Maine, still exist. And his enemies are still out there - even as he fails to recognize them.

Daniel's skills remain and he faces the dangers of the present and the ghosts of his past. It's an exciting, engrossing read - highly entertaining and very much recommended!
