On his way to work one morning, Bill Chalmers suddenly discovers that he cannot remember where he is going, what he is meant to be doing or, indeed, who he is. He remembers only one thing, "The Maximum Information in the Minimum Time", his company's motto. But when his memory returns, it is accompanied by a numbness that gradually affects his entire body. As Chalmers chases down the elusive diagnosis of his illness, he descends into a Kafkaesque nightmare in which the more he discovers, the more he realizes what he has already lost.weiterlesen
