The Last Thing I Remember, written by Andrew Klavan, is a story of interest and riddle encompassing the primary character, Charlie West. Charlie comes to cognizance of being strapped to a chair, as he is throbbing and befuddled. He does not know how he arrived, and he battles to recall, but he cannot seem remember. He can hear men talking outside the entryway. His first drive is to shout to them, yet judgment skills advise him the voices must have a place with whoever fixed him to the chair in the first place. He tunes in, and hears his name, trailed with their goal to slaughter him. Charlie is in a frenzy, yet recalls the expressions of Churchill (who is Churchill? This must be specified before this passage)
- never give in.
The straps holding him are tight, however the leg of the chair has a metal blemish that is near the restriction. He starts moving his leg all over against it. The strap gives in without a moment to spare, yet getting away from his captors is just the start of the bad dream that is Charlie's life now. Charlie figures out how to make tracks (what do you mean by "tracks"?)
in an opposite direction from the officers holding him, however that is the place where his fortunes close since he is still not able to recollect how he arrived (confusing, unsure what is being said here)
. He recollects scraps of the earlier day. Flashes of his karate exhibition at school, conversing with Beth, and how he kept in touch with her by having her phone number on hand. After a stunning departure through underground surrenders, he meets a lady who consents to give him a ride down the mountain. Initially, the lady, Cathy Simmons, fears him, though Charlie figures out how to persuade her and tells her that all he needs to do is to call his mom and go home. She offers him lunch and a phone, however when Charlie calls home, the number is detached. Cathy recommends he call the police or, at any rate, permit her to call her significant other who is a right hand head prosecutor. Charlie concurs, and after the call, she appears to be more inaccessible (what do you mean by "she appears to be more inaccessible?)
, however Charlie is drained (seems like a redundant statement)
. He acknowledges the offer of a shower (from who?)
and finds that an entire year has gone since the most recent day he can recall and when he gets out, shockingly, he is captured (inconsistency here. It's almost as if he took a shower for a year and when he got out he was captured lol)
. Charlie's bad dream proceeds as he is informed that he is a runaway away criminal, having been sentenced for murdering his closest companion, Alex Hauser. They are taking him in to resume his sentence. Followed by a night in prison, he makes a second escape, which sends Charlie on a mission to stop the death of the secretary of Homeland Security, Richard Yarrow. Despite the fact that Charlie figures out how to spare Yarrow (he is sparring Yarrow? But he is trying to stop his death, not cause it. "Spare" might not be the correct word here)
, he cannot persuade anybody that he was attempting to spare Yarrow, not murder him. He must choose the option to keep running for his life once more, and trust he can unwind the puzzle encompassing the most recent year of his life.
