Maps of Hell by Paul Johnston
"I awake in a windowless room - naked, filthy, bruised, robbed of my every memory. I feel inexplicably drowned in a sea of hatred and rage. I... don't know who I am. But I know I must escape."
Crime writer Matt Wells could never have conjured a plot this twisted. A secretive militia running brainwashing experiments in a remote location have made him a subject. He knows they have been feeding him instructions, but why?
Taunted by maddening snatches of a life he can't trust as his own - including memories of a woman he feels he should remember - Matt's accused of three gruesome murders. On the run from his kidnappers and the law, Matt must piece everything together - before it's too late.
