When a beautiful young woman is discovered walking around with a bullet in her brain and no memory of what happened to her, Det. John Cardinal and his partner know that someone left her for dead and if word gets out, they'll try to kill her again.

I thought that this was an excellent entry in the John Cardinal series. Much better than The Delicate Storm. He returns to form with this one.

Great mystery/thriller set in Canada. Good characters and plot involving drugs, biker gangs, and a young woman found wandering around in a bar with no memory of who she is... due to a bullet in her head.

This is Giles Blunt's third offering, and, while not quite up to his first two ("Forty Words for Sorrow" and "The Delicate Storm") is still outstanding. I give it a strong four stars where the first two were undoubtedly five star works. If possible, try to read his books in order; although this book will stand alone, you will enjoy it even more if you are able to follow the development of the main characters.

The reason for the one-star downgrade is that the villain and the ending seemed maybe a little contrived, a little over the top. Still a great read, with an off-beat plot, and a book that might keep you up late at night, not just to finish it but because the villain is so scary.
