One of Us by Michael Marshall Smith

What would you do if you could pay someone to take away your memories? What would you choose to forget? What would you try to get away with? These are the questions Michael Marshall Smith asks in this electrifying new thriller--an eerie mix of disturbing ideas, heart-stopping action, and haunting power from an author who is single-handedly redefining the future of suspense fiction. Hap Thompson had never been that good a criminal. So its a lucky thing hes discovered something that pays even better than crime. And its legal.Almost. Hap is a receiver at REMtemp, working during the night hours, having peoples dreams for them. Hap is one of the best REMtemp has ever seen. Hes so good they offer him some under-the-cover work--taking on memories instead of dreams for clients who have something to forget.And in a world falling apart at the seams, theres no shortage of business. All Hap has to do is carry the memories for a couple of hours.Just long enough for a client to have an affair without guilt.Or pass a lie detector test for a crime she suddenly cant remember.Everyone wins.Until a beautiful young woman who committed murder leaves Hap her memory...and wont take it back. In this world, its not what youve done that counts--its what you remember. Now Hap is on the run.The LAPD wants him for homicide. Six angels of death in grey suits and sunglasses are leaving a trail of dead bodies in his wake.And theres a contract out on his life that has just been picked up by the best hit man in the business: his ex-wife.And if thats not enough to give him the willies, people all around Hap are disappearing in a strange white light. The paranormal. UFOs.Angels.The Bible.A guy who claims hes God.The key to it all may be buried somewhere deep in Haps past. Now all he has to do is stay alive long enough to remember the most important thing of all--whether or not hes...One of Us.
