Donald E. Westlake – Memory

Hospitalized after a liaison with another man’s wife ends in violence, Paul Cole has just one goal: to rebuild his shattered life. But with his memory damaged, the police hounding him, and no way to even get home, Paul’s facing steep odds – and a bleak fate if he fails.

This final, never-before-published novel by three-time Edgar Award winner Donald E. Westlake is a noir masterpiece, a dark and painful portrait of a man’s struggle against merciless forces that threaten to strip him of his very identity.

critique year-end

I love Westlake and while this is a completely different style in all ways and while it was depressing in its reality, it could have been among his best, EXCEPT, the ending. The ending was so weird and abrupt i still can’t believe it was the end. If the Moderator had not come back on telling us that “This has been …” i would be sure the file was corrupted and it was not the end. The reader was great though!
