A secret that could change the world is lost inside a scientist’s comatose mind
The Brainscape, the ultimate gaming device, creates a world, its people and creatures, from the subconscious of the host mind – from books, movies, memories, dreams and nightmares. The mind-link device is a doorway to the subconscious – but it’s unproven, untested and potentially deadly.
When genius scientist Richard Trescerrick finally finds the algorithm to make his invention safe, he knows it could change the world. But before he can reveal it, a mystery attacker leaves him for dead.
To save his life, solve the crime and recover the formula, a team of police and doctors create a link to Trescerrick’s comatose mind. They enter the Brainscape and take with them Richard’s estranged son Luke – a Cornish surfer, drifter, artist, fisherman, part-time drunk and full-time, devoted dad.
Luke must risk his life and sanity on a mission to wake his father, unmask a killer and expose a deadly conspiracy. But in the labyrinth of the Brainscape, death is real. Enemies lurk behind every memory. Secrets spawn riddles wrapped in metaphor. Stories come alive. And monsters are made flesh.
Part mystery thriller, part psychological thriller, part sci-fi fantasy, it's where Inception meets Alice in Wonderland, with Fight Club and Shutter Island along for the adventure...
