Description

Memory makes reality. That's what NYC cop Barry Sutton is learning, as he investigates the devastating phenomenon the media has dubbed False Memory Syndrome--a mysterious affliction that drives its victims mad with memories of a life they never lived. That's what neuroscientist Helena Smith believes. It's why she's dedicated her life to creating a technology that will let us preserve our most precious memories. If she succeeds, anyone will be able to re-experience a first kiss, the birth of a child, the final moment with a dying parent. As Barry searches for the truth, he comes face to face with an opponent more terrifying than any disease--a force that attacks not just our minds, but the very fabric of the past. And as its effects begin to unmake the world as we know it, only he and Helena, working together, will stand a chance at defeating it. But how can they make a stand when reality itself is shifting and crumbling all around them? At once a relentless pageturner and an intricate science-fiction puzzlebox about time, identity, and memory, Recursion is a thriller as only Blake Crouch could imagine it--and his most ambitious, mind-boggling, irresistible work to date.

Review quote

"It's not often I plow through a book in two days. But Blake Crouch's action-packed, brilliantly unique "Recursion" had me up late and shirking responsibilities until I had devoured the last page. A fantastic read." --Andy Weir, #1 New York Times bestselling author of THE MARTIAN

"Blake Crouch has invented his own brand of page-turner--fearlessly genre-bending, consistently surprising, and determined to explode the boundaries of what a thriller can be."--Karin Slaughter, #1 bestselling author "Blake Crouch is brilliant. His innovative novels never fail to grip!"--Sarah Pekkanen, New York Times bestselling co-author of THE PERFECT WIFE "Fans eagerly embraced [Crouch's] 2016 Dark Matter, a pulse-pounding thriller...Here, he again combines fast paced action with cutting edge scientific theory, this time taking a deep dive into memory, identity, and their intersections within the human mind. Reminiscent of the best and most fantastic works by Philip K. Dick, this is set to be a bestseller. Crouch is a rising star to watch closely." --Library Journal
