Sunrise in Central Park. A man wakes up on a park bench with no idea who he is or how he got there. The only clues to his identity are the gold ring engraved "From G.V." he wears on his right hand and the black address book with a single phone number he finds in his jacket pocket. Lacking a name, the man takes one from a passing beer truck and a plane flying overheard--Buddwing, he decides to call himself. For the next twenty-four hours, Buddwing searches Manhattan hoping to rediscover his missing life. But no matter where he looks or whom he talks to, the past remains a confusing, disconnected jumble. One key name, however, echoes through the dim corridors of his mind: Grace. Unfortunately, there is no grace to be found in the sprawling city. From the pretty young college student who brings him to her Greenwich Village apartment to the drunken sailor on shore leave who shows him a wild time in Chinatown to the wealthy, disillusioned blonde who claims him as a treasure-hunt prize, no one Buddwing encounters has the answers he seeks. Weary and desperate, he fears the life he's forgotten is too terrible to recall. But even the most painful memory has to be better than the emptiness of not knowing. Or does it?

"Buddwing", 1964, Evan Hunter, never got me a interested as the did the film "Mr Buddwing", 1966, starring James Garner. The book has too much emphasis on sex, women's bodies, and not enough suspense. If you want to write a story about a man with amnesia don't take so damn long to get going. I made it into chapter 5 before deciding enough of this dragged out saga. Hunter is a crime writer and just repeats himself with a love for violence.
