The Raw Shark Texts

A man wakes in terror, choking for air, in the unfamiliar bedroom of an empty house. He has no memories and no sense of his own identity. The licence in his wallet tells him his name is Eric Sanderson.

Letters and parcels arrive in careful sequence, signed: the first Eric Sanderson. He accumulates a set of instructions for negotiating this unknown and obscurely dangerous life.

He reads his own past…and there is Clio, who was loved—by him?—and who died. His dreams fill with the memory of loss.

Then the attacks begin.

And now, armed with his survival manual and accompanied by a cat called Ian, Eric will set off to find out what it is that’s trying to hunt him down and destroy him.
