Dying to Remember by Glen Apseloff

Dying to Remember

When Dr. Christopher Barnes awakens from a coma, his world lies in pieces. A neurotoxin has left the surgeon with a rare form of amnesia that prevents him from forming new memories. Any new information vanishes within moments.

Then he learns that his wife has been murdered…and he’ll have to relearn this every day.

He vows to solve the case himself, but the police have their own theory—one that puts him at the center of a conspiracy to commit homicide.

Barnes spends his days piecing the crime together and trying to separate friend from foe. The more the cops build their case against him, the closer he gets to the truth…but the deeper he falls into danger. addtogoodreads_zps55cd15da16 Kim Talks TomesTAG

After eating a tainted plate of mussels while at a conference, Dr. Christopher Barnes suffers from severe brain damage and amnesia. His surgical career is over and everyday he has to be told that his wife and dog have been murdered because of he doesn’t remember. What a heartbreaking way to begin every day. He doesn’t remember what happened that day except for what his written in his notes, so when he is suspected of gunning down his wife, he is confused because he insists that he was in a coma in the hospital.

This book was intriguing, suspenseful, and full of a lot of interesting plot twists. The author did a great job of creating a realistic, yet mysterious, story. The medical aspect is an interesting and different plot twist in this kind of story. I really enjoyed reading this one from beginning to end – at no point did I want to put it down out of boredom or frustration. The only thing keeping this unique and powerful story from being a 5 star rating is the simplistic writing style.  With that said, I look forward to reading more from this author and enjoyed this one, immensely.
