“No man ever steps in the same river twice”. Heraclitus. A Familiar Rain explores the premise of memory travel to the past. Alex and the Lab team discover a drug called mnemontine which allows a person to relive a memory exactly as it happened. They work on a technique called cerebrography for regressing their subjects and stimulating their brains. Would you relive the moments with your long-dead love if you could? And if we can relive memories at will, are they truly memories? or do they become something else.
There is a romance down there in the cerebellum and a thriller too: a race to get the research done before the CIA and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police get hold of the papers. Then there is a femme fatale trying to steal the research notes, too.
Who is the shadowy stranger stalking Abbey?
I enjoyed this book very much and it certainly raises many interesting questions.
