Read The Memory Detective Online Free - So many memories. So little time. In an astounding thriller ripped from tomorrow’s headlines, cutting-edge technology and a pulse-pounding manhunt lead to a conspiracy of money, power, and sex.
Cole remembers what it’s like to be murdered. That’s how he does his job. The operation takes eight hours with a dead body on the table next to his; when it’s over, he’s flooded with images, thoughts, recollections, some hazy, some crystal clear. They all come straight from the victim’s brain—right up until his or her final chilling moments.
Cole’s career in homicide has wreaked havoc on his personal life. As usual, his new case—a young runaway battered to death with a hammer—consumes all his waking moments . . . and then some. Haunted by the Jane Doe’s hopes, desires, and fears, Cole mentally retraces her every move, from Kansas to New York City, to track down a killer.
But Cole has a terrible suspicion that someone is using the same memory-transfer science for a very different purpose. In fact, he’s already being watched. Because Cole’s the only one standing in the way of a ruthless corporation that’s harvesting people for their most intimate memories—and eliminating anyone who stands in the way.

Memory Detective is a terrific read. It is a well-written, thoroughly plotted, story that explores a number of really interesting ideas about inheriting memories. Frank Herbert explored this in the Dune series with the Bene Gesserit reverend mothers inheriting all the memories of their maternal a...

Thank you to NetGalley and Random House Publishing Group - Alibi for a digital galley of this novel.
Sometimes a book will have a premise that holds so much promise that I am disappointed when the writing craft doesn't carry the project into a totally enjoyable experience. That's what happened to...

There's just something about memory, lately. The subject has been all over the movies and tv. Maybe it's just what I've been coming across. And I'm mentioning this appropriately while reviewing the book that very much reads like a movie (or a tv show). Something along the lines of a bastard child...

But of course there is a downside to this futuristic society as a secreti...

A good read, but the ending seemed a little weak. Still recommended.

I got ARC of this book and I'm so glad to have chance for reading. The idea about transfer another person memory to help police solve difficult cases is new for me and it's so interesting! I love the writing, the characters and how the writer get me on edge just because I want to know what happen...

T. S. Nichols’ The Memory Detective takes place in a near future or alternate world where life and technology are pretty much the same with one difference–the memories of people who have died can be transferred in a medical procedure to family, loved ones, or if they have been murdered and the fa...

cash? This is Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind in reverse. Instead of deleting memories of a specific person or event, you can get other’s memories. Mom died? Inherit her memories! Cousin lead a phenomenal life? Inherit those memories!
However, remember, inheriting the good also means inheri...
