The Ruinous Sweep

Tim Wynne-Jones

Award-wining author Tim Wynne-Jones (Emperor of Any Place, 2015) delivers an eerie murder mystery that will keep readers in suspense until the very end. On the night Donovan Turner is thrown out of a car in the middle of nowhere, he can't remember his own name, let alone the past twenty-four hours. In an attempt to flag down help, he startles a driver and causes a fatal accident. In desperation, Donovan grabs the dead driver’s briefcase, flees the scene and assumes the victim's identity. Meanwhile, his girlfriend Bee learns that Donovan is the prime suspect in the death of his father. With no memory, he's forced to rely on her to prove his innocence and clear his name, even if it means putting Bee in considerable danger.
