Baker & Taylor
A former policeman and former thief gets a job tending to other people's memories, releasing them to the pleasures of forgetfulness, and finds himself saddled with the memory of a murder involving a beautiful, mysterious woman

Blackwell North Amer
Hap Thompson had never been that good a criminal. So it's a lucky thing he's discovered something that pays even better than crime.
And it's legal. Almost.
Hap is a receiver at REMtemp, working during the night hours, having people's dreams for them. Hap is one of the best REMtemp has ever seen. He's so good they offer him some under-the-cover work - taking on memories instead of dreams for clients who have something to forget.
All Hap has to do is carry the memories for a couple of hours. Just long enough for a client to have an affair without guilt. Or pass a lie detector test for a crime she suddenly can't remember. Everyone wins. Until a beautiful young woman who committed murder leaves Hap her memory ... and won't take it back.
Now Hap is on the run. The LAPD wants him for homicide. Six angels of death in grey suits and sunglasses are leaving a trail of dead bodies in his wake. And there's a contract out on his life that has just been picked up by the best hit man in the business: his ex-wife. And if that's not enough to give him the willies, people all around Hap are disappearing in a strange white light.
