THE MEMORY CHAMBER

Published by Quercus

Released 22 February 2018

 

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.
 
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 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.

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
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.

I’m sure The Memory Chamber’s brilliant storyline will feature in my dreams, and possibily, scarily, even in my future.

A genuinely captivating story with a dark heart and an intricately drawn world not that far from our own.
