Mister Memory

Mister Memory

A dazzling literary mystery from prizewinning author Marcus Sedgwick, for fans of Scarlett Thomas, Carlos Ruiz Zafon and Patrick Suskind.

In Paris, in the year 1899, Marcel Després is arrested for the murder of his wife and transferred to Salpêtrière asylum. And so the story might have stopped.

But this is no ordinary patient: Marcel Després, Mister Memory, is a man who cannot forget. And it is no ordinary case: the hurried cover-up hints at dark secrets in the shadows.

A policeman and a doctor decide to unravel the mystery…but the answers lie inside Marcel’s head.

And how can he tell what is significant when he remembers every detail of every moment of his entire life?

Brilliantly maintains tension and mystery on every page of this highly original story
Daily Mail
A cut above the usual crime novel...a beautifully written tale of the limitlessness of memory and the boundaries placed on love
Sarah Ward, author of <i>In Bitter Chill</i>
This is a clever, fascinating and quite riveting story which poses as many questions as it answers.
Crime Review
Classy, elegant and gripping... A novel for a chilly night with a cup of tea and a warm blanket where you start reading and then go on and on, unable to stop.
John Ajvide Lindqvist, author of <i>Let the Right One In</i> on A LOVE LIKE BLOOD
This macabre fantasy follows a trail of blood across Europe over 50 years...Stylish, thrilling and fast, you needn't be a horror fan to enjoy this.
