Starts off a little slow IMHO but then takes off to become a fast-paced read. The action and characters are believable although the plot is a little strange. The underyling premise seems to be what would you or could you do if you cannot recall anything past the last 5 minutes? Your past life is well remembered but everything after a certain point is life in 5-minute spurts that gets erased and then you start all over again. What would you or wouldn't you do to save your family? Well written and developed not to mention intriguing storylines. A great weekend read.
