"Welcome to Robert Ludlum's world...fast pacing, tight plotting, international intrigue." ―Cleveland Plain Dealer
On Parrish Island, a restricted island off the coast of Virginia, there is a little known and never visited psychiatric facility. There, far from prying eyes, the government stores former intelligence employees whose psychiatric state make them a danger to their own government, people whose ramblings might endanger ongoing operations or prove dangerously inconvenient.

One of these employees, former Consular Operations agent Hal Ambler, is kept heavily medicated and closely watched. But there's one difference between Hal and the other patients―Hal isn't crazy. With the help of a sympathetic nurse, Hal manages to first clear his mind of the drug-induced haze and then pulls off a daring escape. Free, he's out to discover who stashed him there and why―but the world he returns to isn't the one he remembers. Friends and longtime associates don't remember him, there are no official records of Hal Ambler, and when he first sees himself in the mirror, the face that looks back at him is not the one he knows as his own.

From the Back Cover:

HE'S SEARCHING FOR SOMEONE WHO DOESN'T EXIST―HIMSELF.

On Parrish Island, off the coast of Virginia, lies a psychiatric facility. Far from prying eyes, it is a government-run hospital for former intelligence employees in possession of highly classified information. Former Consular Operations agent Hal Ambler is one of these patients whose mind is filled with secrets of state―and is considered such a security risk that he is kept heavily medicated and closely watched. But there's one critical difference between Ambler and the other patients―Ambler isn't crazy. Now he must find a way to escape the facility, find out who put him there, and uncover the truth of who he was...and why someone is willing to risk everything to see him dead.

"Reading a Ludlum novel is like watching a James Bond film...slickly paced...all consuming."
Entertainment Weekly

"Ludlum stuffs more surprises into his novels than any other six-pack of thriller writers combined."
The New York Times
