High school student Charlie West wakes up in a prison cell where he is being tortured for information. Charlie has a difficult time understanding why he is in this situation because he cannot remember anything since he went to bed in his own house. As he begins to put the pieces together he realizes that there is a lot of stuff he does not remember, but he does know he is currently in danger. Can he escape in order to find out where the last year of his life went? Can he find out why he is being tortured?
This story is full of action and suspense right from page one. Any reader will not be able to help getting pulled into the story because the story is so compelling right from the beginning. Where is Charlie? What do they want from him? Who can he go to for help? The plot twists are surprising and yet believable. Fans of espionage novels such as the Bourne trilogy, the Cherub series, or the Sleeper Code will love this book.
