George Price's world has been turned upside down: wanted by the police, with no memory of his past, he has the creeping suspicion that everything about his life after his recent brain surgery has been a carefully-constructed lie. With help from intrepid journalist Jennifer Lee, he tracks down the traces of his former life. Step by step, he will put all the puzzle pieces together-a tragic accident, a high-stakes foreign crisis, a national election, and a murderous religious zealot-to reveal a secret more mind-blowing than anything he or Jennifer could have imagined.
Mechanic George Price has fulfilled his American dream: business is good, and he's married to his devoted Tracy. But after he has surgery to remove a brain tumor, he suffers unnerving memory loss and other psychological trauma. His doctor and father-in-law, Walt, claims they're just normal post-op side effects. But a few chance occurrences and disturbing discoveries begin to convince George that he used to be somebody else, somewhere else... And reporter Jennifer Lee is convinced of the same thing. As George sets out to find his true identity, Jennifer launches an investigation that might turn into the scoop of her career, against the backdrop of a country threatened by terrorism.
