Douglas Quail is haunted by recurring nightmares of someone else's life. Though he has never been to Mars, he dreams often of being there, of covert missions, unfriendly agents, an unforgettably alluring woman, and a life much more glamorous than his earthbound AD 2089 reality. Hoping to alleviate his disturbing fantasies, Quail turns to Rekall, a manufacturer of synthetic memories. Its motto: "We can remember it for you wholesale." With the help of Rekall, it is possible to live a fantasy solely through an implanted memory, tailored especially for him. But something goes terribly wrong. The mind-implanters uncover a deadly secret: Quail's true identity. His dreams turn out to be a reality. And Quail still doesn't know who he really is, though now someone is trying to kill him. Quail must travel across the solar system in order to discover what secrets are locked away in memories he can't trace. What happened to the person he thought he was? Where is that woman who has constantly invaded his sleeping mind? And most important, what of the even greater secret behind all this, that Quail knows exists but can't remember? Total Recall is the science fiction adventure that marks Piers Anthony's long-awaited return to interplanetary action. Inspired by a short story written by the late Philip K. Dick, Total Recall is a visionary glimpse into the future of space travel and the consequences of environmental tampering.--Adapted from dust jacket
