Literature: Disciple of the Dog
Disciple Manning has a rare mental disorder: He remembers everything.
This has led to him becoming a little cynical at times
, as well as giving him an advantage in his profession of choice, a private investigator.The bad part?
He's seen it all, literally. Having the memory he does means that he remembers every pattern, every basic human behavior. He's lost the ability to be surprised.
But then the Bonjours walk in, with a case the likes of which he's never seen before.
Their daughter, Jennifer, has disappeared after being involved with a cult that believes that the earth is five billion years older than it is, and that the sun is about to expand and consume the earth. And things only get stranger from there.
