     THE CRIME WAS OVER IN A MINUTEó THE CONSQUENCES LASTED A LIFETIME

    Hospitalized after a liaison with another manís 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 even to get home, Paulís facing steep oddsóand 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 manís struggle against merciless forces that threaten to strip him of his very identity.

       - First publication ever!
       - This is the final unpublished novel by best-selling novelist Donald
       Westlake, who died on January 1, 2009
       - Westlake was nominated for an Academy Award for the screenplay of "The
       Grifters," and was named a Grandmaster by the Mystery Writers of America,
       the organizationís highest honor
