Summary

Known for his vivid imagery, provocative subjects, and charged prose, Paul Watkins has emerged as one of the most gifted writers of his generation. This powerful novel shimmers with lyrical descriptions of the seascape as it sounds the depths of memory and conscience. Seeing a man brutally murdered in his local hangout on the docks of Newport sends Paul Wedekind into a torturous reverie of his past. Even more disturbingly, Paul is convinced that he recognizes the killer as Ingo Budde, a black marketeering East German friend he left for dead in a Mujahideen prison camp. Paul would like to enjoy his newfound peace and security, but the past is as inescapable as the tide. He must confront what resurfaces before he can get on with his life. Richard Poe’s expressive narration makes this compelling story all the more vivid and memorable.

5* Audiobook

There are sections of this book that are worth reading (or listening to) multiple times, just to enjoy the brilliant things Paul Watkins can do with words. "The Story of My Disappearance" also has memorable characters and an exciting, intricately researched plot. The reading by Richard Poe hits the mark exactly. One of my favourites out of the 800+ audiobooks I've listened to.
