Robert J. Sawyer


An accident at a hospital gives each person nearby access to someone else’s memories…including the US President on the eve of a top-secret mission that may resolve or worsen international tensions. But who has the President’s memories?

The thriller part of the plot really didn’t stick in my head, and the conclusion was one of those out-of-left-field endings that sometimes work and sometimes don’t.

What does work is the exploration of how memories work, how they’re triggered, and how we reconstruct them from pieces.
