The Searcher: A Novel by Simon Toyne

Hari's picture

A plane mysteriously plummets to earth near Redemption, Arizona, disrupting a local man’s grave-side service. A tall, pale man with no memory runs barefoot down the road away from the crash site. The man discovers his name, Solomon Creed, is sewn into a label in his handmade suit jacket and written in the inscription in the book he’s carrying. Creed senses he’s come to Redemption for a reason—to save a man he doesn’t know. Unfortunately, the man was being buried when the plane crashed. Faced with one dangerous situation after another, Creed draws upon an eclectic knowledge of the world around him, most particularly how to survive in it. But he has no idea how he came by it. Bit by bit, he moves closer to understanding the nefarious underpinnings of this town, bringing him closer to an untimely demise. If you’re looking for fast-paced, page-turning suspense, this first book in a planned five-book series more than fits the bill.
