Features Private Detective VI Warshawski.
'Total Recall' follows VI Warshawski on a road that travels back more than fifty years into an intricate maze of wartime lies, secrets and retribution.
For VI, the journey begins with a national conference in downtown Chicago, where angry protesters are calling for the recovery of Holocaust assets. Replayed on the evening news is a slight and vulnerable man who has stood up at the conference to tell his terrible story of a childhood shattered by the Holocaust - a story that has devastating consequences for VI's cherished friend and mentor, Lotty Herschel.
Lotty was a girl of nine when she emigrated from Austria to England as part of a "Kinderstransport" - a group of children sent abroad by their desperate parents to save them from the Nazi terror just before war broke out. Now, stunningly - impossibly - it appears that someone from that long-lost past may have returned.
With the help of a recovered-memory therapist, Paul Radbuka has recently learned his true identity. But is he who he claims to be?
