“Readers will devour the intricacies of this thrilling crime novel and will hurriedly turn the pages until its denouement. VERDICT: For teen fans of Stieg Larsson’s Millennium series and de la Motte’s Game trilogy.” —School Library Journal
“With the breakneck pace of the trilogy but a more mature narrative command, de la Motte deftly spins out these divergent strands, until the intricate outlines of a deadly spider’s web finally become visible—and inescapable.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
In the first of two new action-packed thrillers by the internationally bestselling author of the Game trilogy, MemoRandom takes you deep inside the world of police intelligence—where secrecy, betrayal, and deadly competition reign supreme.
David Sarac is a handler at the Intelligence Unit of the Stockholm Police Force, identifying, recruiting, and wrangling anyone who can support the police in their battle against organized crime. And David is very good at what he does: manipulation, bribes, and threats—anything goes, so long as he delivers. Other agents can do nothing but watch jealously as his top-secret, high-level informant, Janus, rockets David to success.
But after David suffers a stroke during a high-speed car chase, crashing violently into the wall of a tunnel, he wakes up in a hospital with no memory at all of Janus or the past two years of his life. David only knows that he has to reconnect with Janus to protect himself and his informants before outside forces bring the whole network crashing down. Fortunately, he has his supportive friends and colleagues to help him rebuild his life…or does he?
From the award-winning Swedish author who has worked as a police officer and IT security consultant, MemoRandom is a stunning thriller and look inside the secret intelligence community, where you never know who’s on your side.
Anders de la Motte is the author of Game, Buzz, and Bubble. He has worked as a police officer and the director of security at one of the world’s largest IT companies. He now works as an international security consultant in addition to being Sweden’s most exciting and innovative new thriller writer.
“Exciting first in a thriller trilogy…relentless pacing leads to a stunning finale.”
– Publishers Weekly
“A taut thriller that will leave the reader excited for the next book in the series.”
– Kirkus Reviews
“A high voltage, high tech thriller of a trilogy…fast paced and full of surprises…a suspenseful and intelligent read.”
– The Novel Pursuit
“An action-filled thriller that makes good use of an unreliable narrator—in this case, a man desperate to root out his own misdeeds. An intriguing premise and a compelling lead character.”
“With the breakneck pace of the [Game] trilogy but a more mature narrative command, de la Motte deftly spins out these divergent strands, until the intricate outlines of a deadly spider’s web finally become visible – and inescapable.”
– Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“For all the book's twists and turns, de la Motte is completely at ease in thickening and expanding the plot. He never forces the action, which is rare in a spy thriller, instead tightening the web in which Sarac seems to be caught. The cast of characters is nicely varied; part of the pleasure is seeing through the bad guys before the protagonist does. Following up his popular Game Trilogy (Bubble, 2014, etc.), de la Motte keeps the reader guessing in this tale of an amnesiac cop and an informant whose very existence we sometimes doubt.”
– Kirkus Reviews
“Anders de la Motte is a master of the red herring. Just when you think you've figured it out, a new twist turns everything upside down. I'm normally not a big fan of amnesia plots but Anders de la Mott plays it to perfection in MEMORANDOM … a fast paced and thrilling tale in which nothing is ever quite as it seems.”
– Fresh Fiction
“MemoRandom cements de la Motte’s reputation as a master of thrills. Readers unfamiliar with the author are sure to track down his previously lauded Game trilogy.”
– Killer Nashville
“You simply have to read this excellent novel which is absolutely jam packed with exciting twists and turns...My verdict - highly recommended – a must.”
