Currently Reading - The Ninth Circle, Alex Bell

The Ninth Circle has been tempting me for a while now, and it's just clamoured itself to the top of the pile (that I was restacking anyway). 

From the Blurb:

A man comes round on the floor of a shabby flat in the middle of Budapest.  His head is glued to the floorboards with his own blood.  There's a fortune in cash on the kitchen table.  And he has no idea where, or who, he is.

He can do extraordinary things - speak any number of languages fluently, go three days without food or sleep, and fight with extraordinary prowess.  But without a name, without a past, he's isolted from the rest of the world; a stranger to everyone, including himself - until a chance encounter with a young scholar leads to his first friendship, and his first hint that someone out there knows more about him than he does.

Opening Lines:

My name is Gabriel.  There - I have a name.  So there's no need to be afraid.  But I wish I could remember ... something more.
