Ram has cheated death – four times. Who is so desperate to kill him? And why? On the run, Ram finds himself on desolate moorland. He knows he is being stalked, but this time by something less than human . . .
Ram is rescued by the seemingly generous and kind William and Mary. But his relief fades to suspicion and fear when, on learning he has no memory, they insist on calling him Noel. Ram is full of doubt. He has no memory of who he is, but he knows he is not Noel – doesn’t he? And odd memories start to surface. Memories of guns, rifles, explosions. Strange phrases seem to ring bells. Why does Ram feel in his gut that his secret past is not just vitally important to him, but could have even global significance?
Will he get to the truth before his deadly opponent, the Dark man gets to him?
‘Then I heard it: something swishing rhythmically towards me out of the blackness.
Ever had that feeling of terror when you can’t see what’s coming but you know it might be your worst nightmare?’
Strange lights in the night sky, people disappearing, a mysterious man calling himself Destiny . . . Ram has run straight into another mystery. But the people who go missing are people no one will miss, except Ram and the dotty old woman who rescues him . . .
And the Dark Man finds Ram again – but how? Just when Ram thinks it is safe to run, he discovers another terrifying truth. Something that means he will never be safe again. Not him. Not anyone.
Ever since Ram woke up in a tower block a few weeks ago, the deadly and mysterious Dark Man has been hunting him down. With no memory of who he is or what has happened to him, the only thing Ram can be certain of is that time is running out – and not just for him, for everyone.
Ram knows that if he is ever to discover the truth about his identity, the lone bomber and the terrible threat that faces the world, he must turn the tables on the Dark Man. The time for running is over.
In this shocking conclusion to the Nemesis series, Ram faces one final confrontation with his nemesis and evil forces more powerful than he could ever imagine.
