Don’t forget this one — Mr. Nobody

Have you had a chance to pick up a copy of my latest release, A Whisker’s Breadth yet?

And make sure you take a look at my blog post about Halloween books. I’m adding new entries to it each week this month.

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme. Read the rules and more teasers at The Purple Booker. Anyone can play along.

This week’s teaser is Mr. Nobody by Catherine Steadman. I’ve read a couple of this author’s books the last few weeks, and they are very engaging. Great medical or psychological thrillers.

Mr. Nobody is about a man with amnesia and the doctor—with a past—who is treating him. But this is not your run-of-the-mill bang-on-the-head amnesia case. It’s not even a run-of-the-mill fugue case. Well-researched and presented, you’ll enjoy the twist and turns of the plot. Interesting, well-developed main characters. An engaging read.

Even if we somehow managed to survive all that, I’m probably the only person who would be able to fix us afterward. I’m the only doctor with relevant clinical experience in a hundred-mile radius. 

Catherine Steadman, Mr. Nobody

When a man is found on a British beach, drifting in and out of consciousness, with no identification and unable to speak, interest in him is sparked immediately. From the hospital staff who find themselves inexplicably drawn to him, to international medical experts who are baffled by him, to the national press who call him Mr. Nobody, everyone wants answers. Who is this man? And what happened to him?

Some memories are best forgotten.

Neuropsychiatrist Dr. Emma Lewis is asked to assess the patient in a small town deep in the English countryside. This is her field of expertise, this is the chance she’s been waiting for, and this case could make her name known across the world. But therein lies the danger. Emma left this same town fourteen years ago and has taken great pains to cover all traces of her past since then.

Places aren’t haunted . . . people are.

But now something—or someone—is calling her back. And the more time she spends with her patient, the more alarmed she becomes that he knows the one thing about her that nobody is supposed to know.


  1. Wow, that sounds really good!

  2. This sounds really intriguing! I’m going to have to add it to my TBR.
