He Never Said He Wouldn't
In Room 505 at the Royal Hotel, a man awakens to find his memory gone. So is every possession that might help identify him ? he has nothing, literally, but the clothes he is wearing. When the hotel's desk clerk informs him that the room in which he woke wasn't rented last night, he makes his way outside and to the nearest police station. What follows is, for this reader, a fascinating look into the masculine mind. Author Prather's initially mysterious hero is, I suspect, the man whom most men would like to be. Adventurer, genius, consummate lover, world traveler and man of action, he takes on bureaucracies and gun-toting enemies with equal confidence; and must, thanks to the story's twists and turns, resolve a romantic triangle with two equally lovely and desirable young women. Letting the reader get to know the protagonist before he knows who he is himself is an interesting device. Amnesia has been so over-used by writers and dramatists that employing it again, in a new book, really does require justification; but it works in this one. For men's adventure fans, ?HE NEVER SAID HE WOULDN?T? should do well.
