With six hours left of his day, the last thing Dakota Thomas is expecting is the gunshot victim that comes exploding through his ER. This baby-faced Marine found wandering in the desert gives this doctor more questions than answers by the time he finally gets his patient settled and ready for treatment; especially when he reads the dog tags around his neck. There's no way these tags are real unless he's suddenly entered the Twilight Zone.
Michael Ricco has little to no memory of what he was doing in the desert, but he swears his birth date is 1898. The truly troubling thing is that there were apparently thirteen people killed in the area where he was discovered. How can a man this young have a birth date of over one hundred years? Who is after him and how far are they willing to go to get him back or kill him? And just WHO is involved in all of this?
Although this premise is fairly common, I liked the few twists and turns the author gave to make it just that bit different. The ironic humor tossed about just adds to the piquancy, but I have to say that although this is supposedly about the "Marine", his character got a bit over-ridden by the strength of the sub-characters. This was overall a very interesting read and kept my attention throughout. I would read a sequel, anytime.
