When you're chasing memories to survive, it's better to leave the past behind ...Seven is a thief with a difference - he steals downloadable memories from banks and memoriums to sell onto London's black market, trading secrets and hidden pasts for a chance at a future of his own.
He makes sure he keeps some special stuff back to 'surf' himself though - it's the only real form of entertainment he can afford.
But one night, as Seven is breaking into a private memorium in a wealthy part of London, he is caught in the act by one of its residents: Alba, the teenage daughter of London's most famous criminal prosecutor.
Instead of giving him away, Alba promises to keep Seven's secret - as long as he allows her to go memory-surfing herself.
In doing so, they discover a hidden memory about Seven's past, revealing a shocking secret about his childhood, the government and a mysterious experiment known as The Memory Keepers ...Now Seven and Alba will have to race against time to unlock the maze of The Memory Keepers - but can they keep themselves out of harm's way before the London Guard - and Alba's father - catches up with them?
