The raw shark texts

"Eric Sanderson wakes up in a house he doesn't recognize, unable to remember anything in his life. All he has left are his diary entries recalling Clio, a perfect love who died under mysterious circumstances, and a house that may contain the secrets to Eric's prior life. But there may be more to this story, or it may be a different story altogether. With the help of allies found on the fringes of society, Eric embarks on an edge-of-your-seat journey to uncover the truth about himself and to escape the predatory forces that threaten to consume him. Moving with the pace of a superb thriller, The Raw Shark Texts has sparked the imaginations of readers around the world and is one of the most talked-about novels in years."--from cover, p. [4]

  • "Eric Sanderson wakes on the floor of his flat with no idea who he is. He finds a letter from "the first Eric Sanderson" who tells him to visit a Dr. Randle, who informs that he suffered a traumatic accident three years earlier which killed his partner, Clio. She also instructs him not to read or write any more letters to himself. He instantly forgets his sessions with Dr. Randle, and finds not only more letters from his earlier self, but letters from a person he doesn't know. The letters inform him to concoct a bland false identity, because his memories are being eaten by a shark called the Ludovician (it can be seen in action by flipping the pages of the book)."@en
