Amnesia by Michael Ridpath Paperback Amazon £12.99 

Alastair Cunningham wakes up in hospital with almost total amnesia. But he knows that something terrible happened in his past, something that haunts him still. A young family friend, Clemence is called in to help rekindle his memory. Retreating with Alastair to his remote cottage, Clemence finds a peculiar manuscript hidden away from prying eyes. Reading the prologue, she discovers a murder by someone very much like a young Alastair. The victim? Clemence’s grandmother, Sophie. Could this kindly old man truly be a killer? Clemence becomes determined to find out what happened all those years ago, even if she must risk everything to do so…


Sheila MacInnes is responsible for renting out the cottage to Alastair. She cleaned it for him and visited him most days. It was Sheila who found Alastair at the bottom of the stairs. The hospital said Alastair has retrograde amnesia. He has lost the ability to recall events of the past dating back to his childhood. All the rest of his life erased as if it had never existed. A young family friend Clemence finds out that Alastair Cunningham was writing a novel. It started of with a murder. Could this novel have been the truth or a work of fiction?
