"When a man is found on a British 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 national press who call him Mr. Nobody, everyone wants answers. Who is this man? And what happened to him? Some memories are best forgotten. Neuropsychiatrist Dr. Emma Lewis is asked to assess the patient in a small town deep in the English countryside. 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 town fourteen years ago and has taken great pains to cover all traces of her past since then. Places aren't haunted . . . people are. But now something--or someone--is calling her back. And the more time she spends with her patient, the more alarmed she becomes that he knows the one thing about her that nobody is supposed to know"--

Booklist Review: "Dr. Emma Lewis and her family went into hiding after a violent tragedy that took place at their home when she was a a teenager. Partially hiding from the past, partially attempting to fix the pain it has caused her, Emma has become an over-worked neuoropsychiatrist in a busy London hospital. Surprisingly, she is given the golden opportunity to treat a patient deemed ""Mr. Nobody"" after he washed up on a beach in a amnesic fugue-state, not knowing who he is. Upon meeting her patient, Emma discovers that he does know her, however as well as the secrets that she has tried to keep hidden. Uncovering who Mr. Nobody is and how his past is linked to Emma's creates the slow burn of a suspense thriller, speeding up as the truth is revealed, and building in intensity to a wildly fast-paced ending. British actress Steadman's second novel contains the same strong writing style and surprising twists that attracted fans to her impressive debut, Something in the Water (2018).--Margaret Howard Copyright 2019 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "In this over-the-top psychological thriller from bestseller Steadman (Something in the Water), a man with a head wound turns up on an English beach, having no memory of who he is or how he arrived there. London neuropsychiatrist Emma Lewis can't resist a fugue case or a request from Richard Groves, the top neuropsychiatrist in their field, to treat the man nicknamed Mr. Nobody--even if it means returning to a town that she left 14 years ago, where she has secrets of her own. Once the story about Mr. Nobody breaks, the police hotline floods with calls about his identity claiming variously that he's an illegal immigrant, a missing husband/son, a TV actor, or a former soldier. Emma comes to realize that Mr. Nobody recognizes her in a world full of strangers, and he knows things about her past that she thought she'd buried. Point of view shifts diminish the novel's readability at times, but the elaborate plot, filled with seemingly impossible twists, drives to a suspenseful conclusion. Readers will look forward to Steadman's next. Agent: Camilla Wray, Darley Anderson (U.K.). (Jan.)"
