"Waiting On" Wednesday: Triggers by Robert J. Sawyer

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Triggers by Robert J. Sawyer:

On the eve of a secret military operation, an assassin's bullet strikes President Seth Jerrison. He is rushed to the hospital, where surgeons struggle to save his life.

At the same hospital, researcher Dr. Ranjip Singh is experimenting with a device that can erase traumatic memories.

Then a terrorist bomb detonates. In the operating room, the president suffers cardiac arrest. He has a near-death experience-but the memories that flash through Jerrison's mind are not his memories.

It quickly becomes clear that the electromagnetic pulse generated by the bomb amplified and scrambled Dr. Singh's equipment, allowing a random group of people to access one another's minds.

And now one of those people has access to the president's memories- including classified information regarding the upcoming military mission, which, if revealed, could cost countless lives. But the task of determining who has switched memories with whom is a daunting one- particularly when some of the people involved have reason to lie... [April 3]

Okay, I'll admit it, I have yet to read Robert J. Sawyer, despite the fact that he's a fellow Canadian, and despite the fact that books like Illegal Alien and Flashforward have been sitting on my shelves for far too long/

  2. I enjoy these type of books once in awhile but not familiar with this author. Does sound like an interesting concept.

  3. I haven't read Robert Sawyer either, but I knew his name sounded familiar. I see his book Flashforward is what the TV show was based after. His catalog looks very interesting.

  10. I definitely do not read enough Canadian fiction. Thanks for spotlighting this author!

  11. I really like the sound of this book. Ia have been looking around at all of the reviews on the web and they are all positive. I normally get my new book suggestions from Elaine Charles on her radio show The Book Report. I see that she is reviewing the audio version of this book soon. It will be interesting to hear how the reader handles the various characters. You can listen to the show on www.bookreportradio.com
