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
