Your perfect afterlife, or a living nightmare?

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.

But when Jarek's wife is found dead, Isobel uncovers a darker side of the world she works within, and she can trust no one with what she finds...


An elegant tale of love and loss, memory and murder, set in an edgy near future.

Such a wonderful, original thriller...

Vivid, compelling, thought-provoking. SUPERB.

Not only has Holly Cave come up with a startingly original premise for her debut about a Heaven Architect who creates artificial heavens for the dying, she plays God with our emotions too. Beautifully written, highly suspenseful, and very clever indeed, this is a sensational thriller not to be missed.
— Fiona Cummins, author of rattle & the collector
Strikingly original and impossible to put down; one of those novels that stays with you long after you reach the final page. Holly has created a fictitious world that feels impossibly real; a story that you wish you had written; the kind of story you want to take a day off work to enjoy in one day.
— John Marrs, author of The One
Clever and utterly absorbing... This is a MUST read book, you won’t be able to put it down!!
