Memoria. A Corporation of Lies by Alex Bobl
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This noir take on a dystopian USA will appeal to all those who take today's technological advances seriously enough. Imagine a perfect state where even a serial killer can be turned into a cute and cuddly law-abiding citizen, thanks to the obligatory memory cleanse. Imagine a government that claims it can make everyone happy in a crime-free New York, safe in the care of the allmighty Memoria corporation.
Not so crime-free, apparently, otherwise who would want to kill off one of Memoria's top neuroscientists? And what's Frank Shelby got to do with it, a quiet law-abiding citizen who's long forgotten his teenage fighting classes and who is now accused of the murder? The last thing he needs is a dystopian nightmare on his head, but that's what he gets when he ventures into the can of worms called Memoria's HQ.
