Dr. Susan Flemyng embarks on a series of scientific experiments to help her friend, Charlie Monk, the ultimate spy and a man without a conscience, fear, or a memory, recover the truth about his life, but their search leads them on a perilous course that could determine the ultimate fate of the human race. 20,000 first printing.

Charlie Monk thinks he knows who he is - a highly trained, covert government operative; the best there is at what he does. But perhaps he is a neurologically impaired patient at a special clinic who dreams that he is a secret agent. Or perhaps something else entirely, something unthinkable.
When a seemingly routine surveillance mission brings Charlie face-to-face with a memory from his childhood, his well-ordered life disintegrates and Charlie finds himself on the run from his former masters. As his world unravels and the line between what is real and what is virtual becomes more and more blurred, Charlie must use all of his training and unique abilities to uncover the truth. And to stay alive. The only one who can help him may well be the very person responsible for his condition: government scientist Dr. Susan Flemyng. Yet no more free than Charlie, Susan Flemyng also harbors suspicions about the people she works for. She wants to get out, and to do so, she needs Charlie's help.
The question is: Can Charlie trust her? More important, can he trust himself?

Not my favorite of David Ambrose's books, all of which are different from each other. But it kept my interest to the end, which is sometimes all you can expect from a book. It leaves you guessing even at the end what really was going on; it played mind games, as it were -- which was really the whole point of the story.
