Internationally best-selling author Anders de la Motte discusses his stunning new novel MemoRandom (Atria/Emily Bestler Books, 2015), which takes readers deep inside the world of police intelligence where secrecy, betrayal, and deadly competition reign supreme. David Sarac is a handler at the Intelligence Unit of the Stockholm Police Force, identifying, recruiting, and wrangling anyone who can support the police in their battle against organized crime. And he is very good at what he does: manipulation, bribes, and threats – anything goes, so long as he delivers. Other agents can do nothing but watch jealously as his top-secret, high-level informant, Janus, rockets Sarac to success.
But after he suffers a stroke during a high-speed car chase, crashing violently into the wall of a tunnel, he wakes up in a hospital with no memory at all of Janus or the past two years of his life. Sarac only knows that he has to reconnect with Janus to protect himself and his informants before outside forces bring the whole network crashing down. Fortunately, he has his supportive friends and colleagues to help him rebuild his life…or does he? Following the discussion, copies of the book will be available for purchase and signing.
