Author(s): Sebastian Fitzek
Have you ever done something you wish you could forget? Wracked with grief after an accident killed his wife and unborn child, all Marc Lucas wants is to wipe his memory. Until he returns home one night to find that his key doesn't fit in the lock and his wife is alive, well and pregnant - but claims not to recognise him. Marc is drawn into a nightmare world, one where it's impossible to separate reality from fiction. Is he going mad? Or is there a conspiracy at work - one that could cost him his memory, his sanity...even his life.
'Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind meets Inception' - Guardian 'A taut psychological thriller set against the backdrop of modern Berlin.' - The Times 'Dazzling' - Sunday Times 'In the vein of Total Recall or Memento, Splinter is a break neck ride through a collapsing world where the characters and the reader lose contact with what's real. Clear, fast and full of great ideas.' - Big Issue
