Don't Look Back - Josh Lanyon I love amnesia stories when they're well done, and this is certainly an example of that. Josh Lanyon once again manages to draw me in.
Almost every page Peter learns something new/old about himself, learns something that takes him closer to solving the mess he finds himself in, both business and personal. In more than one way, the amnesia hampers Peter's attempts, because he's always just missing details that he feels he should know. On the other hand the amnesia gives him a clearer vision of who he was, makes him see someone close to him for who he really is, instead of the idolised version Peter had been hanging on to.

Great writing, great characterisation.
One minor niggle ... I wish the story had been longer. It was over far too soon, for me. Peter was glad it was finally over ;)
