Recursion (Paperback)Blake Crouch (author)
A breathtaking exploration of memory and what it means to be human, Recursion is the follow-up novel to the smash-hit thriller, Dark Matter, by Blake Crouch.
'Recursion takes mind-twisting premises and embeds them in a deeply emotional story about time and loss and grief and most of all, the glory of the human heart' - Gregg Hurwitz, author of Orphan X
At first, it looks like a disease. An epidemic that spreads through no known means, driving its victims mad with memories of a life they never lived.
But the force that's sweeping the world is no pathogen. It's just the first shockwave, unleashed by a stunning discovery - and what's in jeopardy is not just our minds.
In New York City, Detective Barry Sutton is closing in on the truth - and in a remote laboratory, neuroscientist Helena Smith is unaware that she alone holds the key to this mystery . . . and the tools for fighting back.
Together, Barry and Helena will have to confront their enemy - before they, and the world, are trapped in a loop of ever-growing chaos.

Phenomenonal! Yet again Blake Crouch takes the concept of multiple lines (be they timelines, worldlines or storylines) and weaves them into speculative fiction that is totally immersive and immediately compelling.

“A fast-paced SciFi delight”
Oh my god this book was so much fun! It was a time-twisty, mind-bendy, fast-paced delight and I devoured it in a single sitting. It's a novel that on one hand is what I would term an extreme popcorn read in that... More
