First of all, i don't care if the story is true or not and whether Alex Goodman really existed, so i want to leave this debate out of the review.
The book is great, it may seem a bit slow for the first 50-100 pages as the author introduces you to a plethora of interesting characters but stick with it and it will hook you!
The book covers the story of Alex Goodman, an accountant who is attacked and as a result suffers severe memory loss.
As he builds up a picture of who he is and what happened, it becomes clear that his injuries are the result of something much more sinister. whilst tracking down the people responsible he crosses paths with London gangsters, badger poachers and international criminals allied to the CIA.
