(by Goodreads)


The cable gave Wainwright shocking news of his brother’s death. Garth and Lacey interrupt their honeymoon in Austria to fly home for the services. A tragic car wreck is the first in a chain of extraordinary events—no other person has ever experienced—that drive this heart-pounding thriller.

Waking in the hospital, from a month-long coma, Wainwright’s memory is erased by amnesia. He learns he has a wife who went missing from the crash. He must find those who took Lacey. Then he learns of her secret past, one she’s kept hidden from all.

Fate and circumstances propel an unlikely partnership with his arch enemy, the Assassin. Together they hunt international locations—but with very different goals.
Wainwright—to find his lost past and to rescue a kidnapped bride.

The Assassin—to kill those who hold her captive.

“The police haven’t figured out all the details yet,” Tommy said, “but a sheriff’s deputy found you pinned against the steering wheel of your car and pretty beat up at the bottom of a cliff. He smelled gasoline, so they got you out of the wreck fast.”

“Which cliff? Where did it happen?”

My Opinion

This book reintroduces the readers to Garth Wainwright. He cuts his honeymoon in Salzburg short to attend his brother’s funeral.

With Inside Moves, Walter Danley continues his thrilling Wainwright Mystery series. It is a highly compelling read, with interesting characters – some already known and others newly introduced. Walter Danley paints a clear picture of the most important characters’ minds while the story evolves. I was drawn very close to Garth and his experiences – an invisible friend and ally; learning with him that there are different kinds of bad guys. The characters are complex, believable with their flaws and virtues. Several plot lines are expertly woven into a thrilling experience – Inside Moves has a wonderful flow; it was easy to get hooked. I am looking forward to reading more.

This is a book for you if you like thrillers with believable and complex characters.

Highly recommended!

About the author

Walter Danley is a mystery and suspense novelist and the author of the Wainwright Mystery series, highly praised, fast-paced thriller novels to die for! As a former investment executive, Danley now writes mystery and suspense thrillers instead of living them every day.

The series protagonist, Garth Wainwright, is a character created from bits and pieces of the many people the author knew in business from that era. The conflicts, conspiracies and murders in these stories are all fiction from the author’s fevered brow. But the fraud, sex, and greed he’s written about comprised significant elements of the multi-billion-dollar real estate syndication business of the late 70s and early 80s. Danley used his years of experience in that industry to craft the Wainwright Mystery series.

Critics say that if you like mystery and suspense tales with exhilarating thrills, blind curve plot twists, and page-turning action, you will love Walter Danley’s novels. Walter lives in the Texas Hill Country and writes from his library overlooking the Cibolo Creek.
