Uncertainty. Readers who like creative and thrilling plots are those most likely to enjoy Marcus Sakey’s novel, The Two Deaths of Daniel Hayes. Sakey keeps readers uncertain about what’s going on especially by having the protagonist suffer amnesia. Readers interpret actions through Hayes’ limited and unclear recollections. Sakey also keeps it unclear about who’s on Hayes’ side and who’s the enemy. Despite the thrilling plot, I found that I developed no empathy for any of the characters.
Rating: Three-star (Recommended)
