The Memory Chamber
The dark and addictive thriller that will blow your mind
By Holly Cave
An afterlife of your own design, what could go wrong? The dark and gripping thriller from an exciting new voice in speculative fiction.
You are going to die. You can preserve a handful of special memories for ever. Which ones would you choose?
True death is a thing of the past. Now you can spend the rest of eternity re-living your happiest memories: that first kiss, falling in love, the birth of your children, enjoyed on loop for ever and ever.
Isobel is a Heaven Architect, and she helps dying people create these afterlives. So when she falls for Jarek, one of her terminal - and married - clients, she knows that while she cannot save him, she can create the most beautiful of heavens, just for him.
But when Jarek becomes the prime suspect in a murder that took place shortly before his death, Isobel has to fight to clear his name. The search leads her to a darker side of the world she works within, and she can trust no one with what she finds.
The Memory Chamber is a thrilling and original story which vaults the reader into a world that is terrifyingly close to our own, where we can avoid everything we fear - even death itself. But can we ever escape the truth?
