Product description


A crisply-written, fast-paced thriller that makes assured use of cutting-edge science fiction ideas. -- Ken MacLeod, best-selling author of 'The Star Faction'

A new voice in British SF that we should all be taking an interest in. -- Joe Gordon, Forbidden Planet International

An interesting debut novel that successfully blends cyberpunk and technothriller and presents a few good SF ideas along the way. -- Andy Sawyer, The Alien Online

The narrative is thoughtful and the way Hocking makes events from different decades mirror each other shows quiet skill. -- The Guardian

This is a multi-stranded, complicated novel that provides a very clever and satisfying denouement. -- Tregolwyn Book Reviews

Understated, almost 1950s feeling. Layering of the narrative is thoughtful...shows quiet skill. -- The Guardian, February 26, 2005


It is 2023. Scientist David Proctor is running for his life. On his trail is Saskia Brandt, a detective with the European FIB. She has questions. Questions about a bomb that exploded back in 2002. But someone is hunting her too. The clues are in the shattered memories of her previous life. She has only hours to decipher them. As Proctor attempts to leave England, heading towards a future he cannot imagine, Brandt knows only this: Those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it. "Deja Vu" takes the reader on a startling journey through a possible future, through digital minds, and through the consequences of the choices we make. It is the debut novel by Ian Hocking. "Imaginative, intertwined themes come together as the plot of 'Deja Vu' races on apace. The science is coherent and credible - the action is unstoppable. Complex but clear, it's involving all the way." - John Griffiths, author. "An excellent fast-paced thriller with a science fiction edge. The novel explores future scientific technology, highlighting both the amazing possibilities which this can afford, as well as the potential peril." - Jonathan Martin.
