New Release: Memory Makers, A Medical Mystery by Debbie De Louise

I’m excited to announce the release of my new novel, Memory Makers.(link: http://mybook.to/memorymakers) This book is currently available as an eBook and free on Kindle Unlimited. It’s also in paperback and other editions will be forthcoming.

Twenty-five years ago, Lauren Phelps and her sister Patty were kidnapped from their backyard on Long Island. Lauren escaped her captor, but Patty was killed.

Ever since, Lauren has suffered from nightmares of the “Shadow Man.” Trying to recall his face and avenge her sister’s murder, Lauren, now a kidnapping investigator, enrolls in a clinical trial for a new memory drug.

At the offices of Memory Makers in California, she receives the injections of the Memory Makers’ serum, and begins to experience flashbacks of repressed memories. Along with the flashbacks, she receives threats from an anonymous source that point back to her childhood trauma.

Soon, Lauren becomes involved with a fellow trial participant who seeks to recall his own traumatic past. But can Lauren discover the identity of the “Shadow Man” before history repeats itself?

EXCERPT

I leaned back, closed my eyes against the blaring lights of the jail cell-sized room and tried to answer Dr. Murray’s questions about that summer day twenty-five years ago. Concentrating on the images that flickered in my mind, I saw my five-year-old sister and me in a sandbox, a faceless man entering our backyard gate. 

 “Don’t think too hard, Lauren. Let the memories come.” The doctor’s voice persisted, a mantra in my head. 

I struggled to summon up the rest of the scene.  “Patty and I are in our sandbox and there’s a man, but . . . I’m sorry, Dr. Murray. I can’t see his face.” I opened my eyes. My heart was pounding, the same reaction I had each night after my dreams of the “Shadow Man” that had haunted me since childhood.
