FATAL MEMORIES The MEG-a revolutionary brain scanner-is the culmination of Dr. Anne Powell’s brilliant career as a neuro-psychiatrist. Designed to accomplish in seconds what conventional psychotherapy can only hope to achieve in years, the MEG could change the course of psychiatric treatment forever-if it doesn’t kill her first. There, a laboratory accident reignites a centuries-old conflict, and threatens to return a blood thirsty dictator to power. Powell soon realizes that the MEG is capable of far more than brain-scanning.

Official site of Vladimir Lange. This concept is so counter to everything that was drummed into us in medical school. It could only be treated in a work of fiction. While I was working on this book, it became apparent to me that the "fiction" I was creating is not so far from what could become very real in a few years

Reviews about Fatal Memories (7):

ScienceThrillers review: The standard "back cover" summaries of Fatal Memories, including the one above, fail to convey what this book is really like. By synopsis alone, it sounds like just another medical thriller, with a Russian twist and a bit of love story. But it's much more than that. Vladimir Lange's Fatal Memories is a Romance, with emphasis on the capital "R". I'd never read a book quite like it. And I loved it.

This novel combines what you expect-slightly futuristic, science-based realism of a good science/medical thriller-with an unexpected dose of Romanticism: not just sex/love romance, but the whole package of passionate sensibilities, uncontrolled irrationalism, and exotic locales linked to an exotic past. In Romances, men and women love but they also choose to suffer and die for love. Pain and pleasure are two aspects of a Romantic existence which puts reason in the back seat and allows natural urges to follow their own course regardless of the consequences.

The fascinating Romantic twist in Fatal Memories centers on our protagonist, hyper-rational medical technology innovator Dr. Anne Powell. In Dr. Powell's world, everything is measurable, explainable. She does not indulge her "feelings", though we learn that an earlier experience with true love left her strangely damaged and afraid to ever love again. The twist? This Spock-like woman experiences odd dreams, realistic dreams of a lovers' tragedy from medieval Russia. At first, she ignores them. Then she assumes the visions were prompted by a novel she read long ago. As the visions increase in frequency and intensity, becoming waking hallucinations rather than sleeping dreams, she applies her scientific method to investigating the cause. The answers she finds clash with her rational world view, but she cannot escape the reality of what she is experiencing.

I loved this contrast between the woman's scientific approach and the utterly unscientific problem which threatens to destroy her-or make her utterly anew. On top of that, the setting is a combination of present-day and medieval Russia. Author Lange is himself Russian, and his simultaneous affection for and frustration with his homeland comes through in many passages. The "action" is sometimes bogged down by details about Russian culture, music, and history, but these details weave a web of authenticity and add to the exotic strangeness of what Anne is going through.

The science/medicine in this one is a mixed bag. Vladimir Lange is a physician as well as author, and he gets right the culture of medicine and medical research in this book. The basic tech details about brain scanning and ablation also ring true, but obviously the story drifts into SciFi territory with its past-lives theme.

Bottom line: I was utterly swept up in the story of a tragic love affair which has lasted for hundreds of years, combined in this book with the trappings of a great medical thriller. (Watch for the Swan Lake scene!) By the climax, past and present events are merging, history threatens to repeat itself, and the reader surges along to the finish. Highly recommend for SciThri fans who have a romantic streak. (Hard-core techno/action thriller fans, look elsewhere, this book isn't for you.)

Fatal Memories is a fascinating science-fiction suspense thriller that is sure to be made into a movie coming to a theater near you. The visual imagery, particularly of exotic places in Russia, is breath-taking, and the narrative descriptions make you feel like you're right there watching it all happen. The scene-shifts are well-paced and constructed in a way that you just can't put the book down at the end of the chapter. In fact, this little devil had me up until 2:00 in the morning because I had to find out what happened next.

The protagonist in the book, Anne Powell, seems to have it all. She's intelligent, athletic, gorgeous (honey-blond hair and melting green eyes), and poised to become a very wealthy woman. Yet, Lange makes her human and flawed by a violent past which makes her an emotional cripple, unable to give or receive love. The other main characters are "beautiful people" yet also multidimensional. Even the antagonist in the story is more than a mere villain; she's somewhat sympathetic because she is a victim as well.

The detail and subtle nuances in this book, along with the realistic dialogue (except that nobody ever curses - what's up with that?) suggest that this first-time novelist spent a lot of time researching his story and finely crafting the work. And it paid off big-time. Don't be the last on your block to read this book!

I really enjoyed this book, and think it would make a great movie. Having been a devotee of Robin Cook since "Coma", and reading a fair amount of Dean Koontz in the past, I found "Fatal Memories" to be a thrilling combination of the scientific and the "almost supernatural". With the wonders of the mind being only partially understood, the premise of having lived past lives and being able to regress the memory center of the brain back to them to relive them, is incredibly intriguing. Not to mention the excitement that comes from the inevitable potential for abuse and misuse of the emerging technology.

Reading for me is a very visual experience, and Dr. Lange painted, with his words, both the beauty and bleakness of Russia, and welcomed the reader into Russian culture and a love story from the past. The characters had a depth and sensitivity that was easily felt throughout the story, complicated by the driven work ethic that creates, for our heroine,the emptiness of meaningless or failed personal relationships. This enabled the emerging love story to have far more impact on the twists that revolved around the characters. I felt as if I were standing right in the middle of the story, watching it unfold around me like a video.

If a book does not do that for me, then I feel the writer hasn't done his or her job. I can happily say that Dr. Lange has more than "done his job" with this novel, and I look forward to reading more of his fiction efforts. While my usual reading genres are the crime or mystery novels (the more bizarre the killer, the better), and political or spy thrillers, I have always enjoyed a good medical cliffhanger. Great fun to read them when in the hospital following surgery, as it freaks out the nurses and the medical staff.... :0)

Can't wait to see what Dr. Lange comes up with next. His non-fiction talents are phenomenal, and the incursion into the world of fiction has an extremely strong base upon which he can draw to create future successes.
