America, 2036. A wasteland in economic ruin. Terrorism and ultra-violence plague a once powerful society, whose people's only escape is to numb themselves on flashback - a euphoric yet cripplingly addictive drug that allows its users to revisit happier, past experiences. Ex-cop and addict Nick Bottom has seen flashback destroy his life. All he has left are the flash-induced memories of his beloved wife, taken from him in a fatal car accident. In despair, and at rock bottom, Nick receives a proposition. Powerful magnate Hiroshi Nakamura wants his services and, in particular, his memories. As head of the original investigation into the murder of Nakamura's son - an unsolved and seemingly impossible mystery - Nick's flashbacks now, six years later, hold the key to solving what was the greatest failed case of his career. This mission will bring Nick nearer to a hidden truth, one he may not be prepared to face, and will place his life in ever-increasing danger. Flashback: Dan Simmons' vision f a terrifying not-too-distant future; his fusion of awe-inspiring imagination, heart-thumping pace and surging plot cementing his status as one of the most versatile and visionary talents of his generation.--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Dan Simmons is an odd writer. Some of his stuff is simply sublime and verging on the point of excellence, as with his novels Carrion Comfort and The Terror, whilst others are... Read morePublished on 24 April 2013 by sparkymarky1973
