Review

Highly ingenious and engaging: a mystery within a mystery within a mystery, like one of those Russian dolls. I was gripped. The irony in all this is that Amnesia will lodge in my memory for years to come. -- Peter Lovesey One of our finest thriller writers... Atmospheric, sinuous and elegant, [Amnesia] demonstrates Ridpath's special talent. Daily Mail Scenically breath-taking, ingeniously plotted...The best thriller you'll read all year -- Frances Fyfield I defy you to put this down before you've read to the bitter end. This book is absolutely compulsive. Another fabulous and irresistible thriller from the UK's king of crime. -- Michael Jecks With its setting in the Highlands of Scotland and Italy, Amnesia is a compelling and complex thriller. This is Michael Ridpath writing at his elegant best, prolonging the tension right up to the neat little twist on the very last page. -- Aline Templeton A wonderfully twisty thriller, with unflagging pace and a premise to die for. -- Andrew Taylor A really top-notch story which weaves past and present into a nerve-jangling edge-of-your-seat thriller. -- Robert Goddard A complex story, well researched and beautifully executed, pacy but poignant - I loved it. -- Mari Hannah Impossible to put down - a great read. Loved the ending. -- Thomas Enger A fabulous story from a real master of crime. -- Michael Jecks Creepy, mysterious and thrilling, this is great storytelling with a heart. -- Stav Sherez Amnesia is Michael Ridpath at the top of his game - a gripping, twisting novel that begs to be read in one sitting. -- William Ryan With Amnesia, Ridpath has managed to create a beautifully crafted novel, a devilishly and intricately woven mystery, an intelligent but tight-paced thriller. Exceptional. -- Craig Russell An engaging heroine and a clever, multi-stranded plot make Amnesia an enthralling read. -- Mick Herron Amnesia is a tense thriller which expertly weaves the past and present together to create a narrative which will keep you hooked from one chapter to the next. Bookbag Michael Ridpath grabs your attention from the opening sentence and holds it until the very end with a plot that is both original and believable. This is a remarkable study of love, friendship, loss and regret within the tight framework of page-turning thriller. -- L.C. Tyler Really loved the ingenious, engrossing Amnesia by Michael Ridpath. A clever concept, expertly handled and beautifully, vividly written. -- Steve Mosby

This book kept me thoroughly entertained during most of a transatlantic flight last week. It is very well written and the plot is extremely clever and ingenious, with some brilliant twists at the end. I do need to say that I did not find the 'novel within a novel' as interesting as the main narrative, and often found myself skipping the novel within a novel in order to get back to that main narrative. But that is only how I saw the book and I daresay many readers won't have this problem. Still, it seems to me a matter of commonsense that when a writer succeeds in producing a compelling and fascinating main narrative, as Michael Ridpath certainly does here, there is surely always the danger that readers may be a bit resistant to being presented with a second and very different narrative, even if it is vital to the story. Yet this book still to my mind unquestionably deserves five stars.

I am privileged to know Mr Ridpath but that does not influence me in my comments here.

Overall, despite this one matter I mention above, this is an extremely clever and entertaining novel and I very much recommend it.

Very disappointing. I have thoroughly enjoyed all Michael Ridpath's Icelandic detective stories but was decidedly underwhelmed by this book. I found the basic premise too unbelievable and contrived.

Possibly Michaels best novel to date. I loved the "two books in one" idea and the plot was excellent. Really curious how Michael came up with such great ideas for this novel. If you are a Michael Ridpath fan you've probably already bought this book, if you are a new reader you are in for a treat.
