    A man wakes up on the floor of a jail cell and doesn t remember who he is When he does, remember things that he s Val Haines, he wants to forget it He needs help, and turns to a past love Audrey d Arcy Val isn t sure that he can trust her though.I really loved this book The only negative thing I can say about it was that it was heavy on the suspense and light on the romance I like an even dose of both I chose this author because I was upset over a series I read by Terri Blackstock You do A man wakes up on the floor of a jail cell and doesn t remember who he is When he does, remember things that he s Val Haines, he wants to forget it He needs help, and turns to a past love Audrey d Arcy Val isn t sure that he can trust her though.I really loved this book The only negative thing I can say about it was that it was heavy on the suspense and light on the romance I like an even dose of both I chose this author because I was upset over a series I read by Terri Blackstock You do not lead a reader with three good books then destroy it on the last one I will never read anything by her again, but Davis Bunn knows what he s doing The various characters who were on the shady side, but good guys who helped him out was so interesting to read The fact that one of his enemies was Audrey s own brother made it even better.It was very good, and I will be sure to readfrom this Christian suspense author, because he knows what readers want and gives it to them

    Liked this It was pretty good I could easily see this as a movie, with someone like Michael Douglas The name kinda tells the general story, and it is told well, but the plot is kinda old I almost got bored with it at a couple places, but there are some interesting new ideas for this one that i have not seen before all in all, turned out better than expected, and pretty good overall.

    An interesting story and I liked the fact that there was nothing offensive in the story I ll likely pick up another of his books just for that reason.

    This book is not a usual genre for me suspense , but I stumbled upon it and was intrigued by the corporate fraud element of it Fun read No regrets.

    I liked this read, but I wouldn t read it again It may just be a little too action packed for my taste I am not sure what it was missing in order to receive a full five stars.

    Again a great example of Bunn work as a suspense writer who writes about the world but through a Christian POV The idea of a once upstanding man s fall from grace is a classic line of thought What makes this version different is that Val Haines, the protagonist, doesn t remember how good or bad he was As the mystery of a NYC bombing, lost pension funds, and embezzled money is discovered, Val must remember his past mistakes and painful remembrances to solve the crime, save the company, and win Again a great example of Bunn work as a suspense writer who writes about the world but through a Christian POV The idea of a once upstanding man s fall from grace is a classic line of thought What makes this version different is that Val Haines, the protagonist, doesn t remember how good or bad he was As the mystery of a NYC bombing, lost pension funds, and embezzled money is discovered, Val must remember his past mistakes and painful remembrances to solve the crime, save the company, and win the girl The villain in this journey, Terrance d Arcey is a true Gordon Gecko protege As they both maneuver towards the money and a final confrontation Terrance must deal with his family and past as well Toss in a dirty ex cop, eastern european gangsters, bad English weather, and the island of Jersey you get the whole story Bunn makes references to the Enron scandal and past Wall Street corporate greed scheme but has less of the details As a whole Bunn stays away from the complicated aspects of embezzlement and sticks to the action The only confussing parts were the dialogue when multiple scenes and character were without a great transition between them Those who liked John Grissom, especially The Firm, will find this an easy and fun read My only problem is that the story would have benefitedwith additional length Another 50 100 pages would have added a lotto building up the suspense, filling plot holes, explaining the ending better and possibly given room for deeper reflections by Terrance I hated his arrogance in the beginning but was wanting his redemption,so than Val, by the end Val was equally likable beginning, middle, and end but not a great hero

    Awakening in a jail cell and bleeding from his head, Val Haines remembers nothing Not even his name The Lazarus Trap is a story that could be taken straight from the headlines A multi million dollar company, greed, and an unquenchable desire for revenge leave the characters fighting for their lives, for the truth, and for justice.The story starts out a little slow, building character relationships and history and ALL of these characters have a backstory Davis Bunn did an excellent job crea Awakening in a jail cell and bleeding from his head, Val Haines remembers nothing Not even his name The Lazarus Trap is a story that could be taken straight from the headlines A multi million dollar company, greed, and an unquenchable desire for revenge leave the characters fighting for their lives, for the truth, and for justice.The story starts out a little slow, building character relationships and history and ALL of these characters have a backstory Davis Bunn did an excellent job creating characters with a past and a purpose that drives them forward, even secondary characters were rich with personality enough that I actually wantedof them in the story However, their history, their goals, what they fight for is never fully threshed out and I was only left with hints of a life I ll never knowabout.The story picks up speed about 2 3 of the way in and we travel to England and are met withmemorable characters with small roles and big personalities The storyline moves rapidly at this point and all of the pieces of the puzzle are coming together in a manner that seems just too convenient Everything starts working out for Val Haines, and obstacles to his goal just kind of disappear or are easily overcome resulting in a tidy finale For many writers today the focus is always on character, character, character And Davis Bunn excelled in creating characters I wanted to knowpersonallyunfortunately their stories end on page 288

    The novel begins with the protagonist, Val Valentine Haines in jail with temporary amnesia, bleeding from a head wound As his memory slowly comes back, he discovers the world thinks him dead and he is being framed by his nemesis with embezzling the company pension funds The story is about Val s determination to get back the embezzled funds, whilst Terence, his nemesis, tries to ensure he remains dead.The author has won three Christy awards, I had to google these, they are awarded to recogni The novel begins with the protagonist, Val Valentine Haines in jail with temporary amnesia, bleeding from a head wound As his memory slowly comes back, he discovers the world thinks him dead and he is being framed by his nemesis with embezzling the company pension funds The story is about Val s determination to get back the embezzled funds, whilst Terence, his nemesis, tries to ensure he remains dead.The author has won three Christy awards, I had to google these, they are awarded to recognize novels of excellence written from a Christian worldview There is little overtly Christian in the story the language is tame for a suspense thriller, nothing stronger than floozy , also, two minor characters met each other on an Alpha course and, of course, there is no sex There are some bad guys, who turn away from a life of crime and there is some forgiveness but nothing really preachy.I have a little trouble with the names of the hero and his enemy Valentine and Terrance, to me Val, I always associate with Valerie Singleton of Blue Peter and Terrance as the name of a terrier dog These are my own prejudices.All in all, I found it an okay read, the plot was a little predictable, the characters were interesting, even if I had a problem with their names, the bad guy is a little one dimensional The action skips from America to Britain to Jersey
