Happy Friday!!!! Welcome back to “First Lines Fridays”!!!
For those of you who are new to this, First Lines Fridays is a weekly meme that is hosted by Wandering Words. It’s a very quick and simple meme all you have to do is:
Choose a book from your shelves/current read, open the book to the first page, copy the first line or two on the page making sure you don’t give away the book title and then reveal the book.
“Barry Sutton pulls over into the fire lane at the main entrance of the Poe Buildin, an Art Deco tower glowing white in the illumination of its exterior sconces. He climbs out of his Crown Vic, rushes across the sidewalk, and pushes through the revolving door into the lobby.”
Do you recognise which book these lines come from?
This weeks book is…
Synopsis/Blurb (Taken from Goodreads):
Memory makes reality. That’s what New York City cop Barry Sutton is learning as he investigates the devastating phenomenon the media has dubbed False Memory Syndrome—a mysterious affliction that drives its victims mad with memories of a life they never lived.
Neuroscientist Helena Smith already understands the power of memory. It’s why she’s dedicated her life to creating a technology that will let us preserve our most precious moments of our pasts. If she succeeds, anyone will be able to re-experience a first kiss, the birth of a child, the final moment with a dying parent.
As Barry searches for the truth, he comes face-to-face with an opponent more terrifying than any disease—a force that attacks not just our minds but the very fabric of the past. And as its effects begin to unmake the world as we know it, only he and Helena, working together, will stand a chance at defeating it.
But how can they make a stand when reality itself is shifting and crumbling all around them?”
