The critically acclaimed and award-winning author of the Frank Corso and Leo Waterman series returns with a spellbinding novel of vanished lives and heinous betrayals that races, twists, and turns like a roller coaster running wild. Discovered near death in a railroad car - his body broken, his mind destroyed - the man they call "Paul Hardy" has spent the past seven years living in a group home for disabled adults, mute, unresponsive, and eternally lost in a dull, gray haze.But in the aftermath of a horrific car accident, he awakens in the hospital with a reconstructed face, a voice, and a mind clouded with memory. No longer Paul Hardy, he's someone even he himself cannot recognize. And he's got a purpose: to follow the confusing images in his brain to his lost past and identity. But his strange rebirth has attracted the dangerous attentions of powerful government men determined to keep a devastating secret buried forever. And now he must run . . . or die.

I am a great fan of G.M. Ford's novels, especially his Leo Waterman series, so I am going back to read some earlier works. Nameless Night is a standalone; I hope it Is of in a corner by itself. The premise is good, but the execution is not. It's almost picaresque in its journey as it wanders cross country picking up ancillary characters and discarding them just as easily. It includes several points of view, but only the main character gets serious attention, and the other POV's serve as jarring interruptive counterparts to the protagonist, as if the writer couldn't decide which story to tell. The attempts at describing scenery and weather seem stilted and mostly artificial.

This is an aberrancy of the author's work and like the title, this book should remain Nameless, and if you read it at Night you might easily fall asleep. Now on to my next look at Ford's work.
