Do you hold on to your memories? Or do they hold on to you? Magicov the Magnificent, grand illusionist, earns his living entertaining the geriatrics of Lotus House Care Home. But Mr Magicov (also known as Peter) envies them - they've mastered a trick that eludes him. They can forget. Peter yearns to forget. But memories haunt him: the shameful moment an eight-year-old wrecked his life; the FBI agent who hunted him like a dog; that suitcase stuffed with a million pounds. More than anything Peter wants to forget Kate, the expert con woman. The one he loved and left. For renowned bain-scientist Dr Chris Tavasligh, Peter's craving to escape makes him the perfect candidate for a bold experiment in changing minds - forever. Faced with such an opportunity, will Peter go through with it? And if he does, who will he become?
