Mr Nobody

From the Blurb

When a man is found on a Norfolk 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?

Neuropsychiatrist Dr Emma Lewis is asked to assess the patient. 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 small town in Norfolk 14 years ago and has taken great pains to cover all traces of her past since then.

But now something – or someone – is calling her back. And the more time she spends with her patient, the more alarmed she becomes.

Has she walked into danger?

My Review and Haiku

I listened to, read, loved and reviewed Ms Steadman’s first novel, Something in the Water last year, so I was thrilled to be able to listen to and read her second novel, Mr. Nobody.

I’d describe Mr Nobody as a chilling psychological and medical thriller. It’s brilliant, enigmatic, disturbing, and a compelling read. It’s wonderfully written and well plotted, readers will never guess which way the plot will turn, and there are plenty of unexpected twists and turns. The whole novel works up to a heart stopping climax which is definitely not for faint hearted or sentimental readers.

I recommend the audiobook version, read by the author, a real treat!

I really can’t say any more than the blurb or there will be spoilers. Especially for lovers of unsettling and disquieting novels of psychological suspense.

Mr Nobody

He hides your secrets,
Beware Mr Nobody,
The man with no name,
He’s no one and everyone
That lurks deep in your nightmares.
