Overview

Martin Harris returns home after a short absence to find that his wife doesn't know him, another man is living in his house under his name, and the neighbors think he's a raving lunatic.

Overview

Martin Harris returns home after a short absence to find that his wife doesn't know him, another man is living in his house under his name, and the neighbors think he's a raving lunatic. Worse, not a single person—family, colleague, or doctor—can vouch for him. Worse still, the impostor shares all of Martin's memories, experiences, and knowledge, down to the last detail. He is, in fact, a more convincing Martin than Martin himself. Is it a conspiracy? Amnesia? Is Martin the victim of an elaborate hoax, or of his own paranoid delusion?

In his high-powered new novel, Didier van Cauwelaert, the award-winning author of One-Way, explores the illusory nature of identity and the instability of the things we take for granted. Dispossessed of his job, his family, his name, and his very past, Martin Harris is an Everyman caught in an absurd and yet disturbingly convincing nightmare, one that seems to have no exit and that resists every explanation. Part moral fable, part Robert Ludlum-style thriller, Unknown is a fast-paced tale of one man's desperate attempt to reclaim his existence—even at the cost of his own life.

    Flower's Capture Chapter Seven by Violet

    *Author's
    Note-
    (Originally i was thinking of the next character being named
    Pansy. Thank you for some names. This story is based off of my brother's friend's story. Thanks for reading and character applicatioms are in the next result.) -Author's
    Note* <br><br>
    Violet was worried.
    Dahlia hadn't come back.
    Different questions clamored for her attention.
    'Did they kill her?'
    'Where is she now?'
    'Won't they be doing this to me soon?'
    'What about my parents? What will happen to them?'
    Violet couln't halt this stream of questions, which were beginning to overwhelm her.
    Silently, she began to cry.
    Again the door opened.
    Oh no!
    Were they going to take
    Mari also?
    Her questions were distinguished as a new girl was brought in, and dumped on the stone floor. They shackled her arms and legs to the ground and just left her there.
    Violet was astonished.
    Why were they being such poor hosts?
    That girl was bleeding from her head!
    Mari shook her chains in an attempt to get
    Violet's attention.
    Mari mouthed, "That's my sister!!!"
    Violet was shocked. Why would they want sweet little Fern?
    What's with these guys' obsession in kidnapping girls with flower names? <br><br>
    It wasnt that bad being weightless. She was still shackled to something. But unfortunately, she had no energy but yhe electricity that coursed through her body. An order.
    Again? Why couldn't she get to rest? These people were harsh. She couldn't remember her own name. <br>
    *Author's
    Note-
    (Can you guess who it is? Don't forget character applications are in the next res! Not here!) -Author's
