Details: no. 2 Jo Beckett Mystery
After examinations and scans in a hospital, it's determined that Ian Kanan has been contaminated with something that has affected his brain, meaning that he can't form any new memories.
But this discovery is only the start of a nightmare. People want Kanan to hand over the contaminant, and have ways of forcing him. But with Kanon being contagious, but not aware of it, and the substance highly volatile, far more is at stake then Kanon's personal interests. With Kanan on the run to fulfill his mission, not finding him could spell disaster for San Francisco and the rest of the world.
This is more of a thriller than a mystery and I wouldn't have minded a bit more detecting and a bit less action.
Still, I'm growing to like the characters and the story is both well written and a real page turner. So, I will be back for more of Jo Beckett's adventures. If only to see how her emerging relationship develops.
