The Deep Sea Diver's Syndrome

(2016)
A novel by

 
An undisputed French master of the fantastic - as prolific as Stephen King; as original as Philip K. Dick - now in English for the first time

They call them "mediums" - professional dreamers who "dive" into the dream world to retrieve items that convert to valuable artworks in the waking world. What's more, the more dangerous the dream, the more valuable that artwork becomes.

In David Sarella's dreams, he's a professional jewel thief. With the help of his beautiful accomplice, Nadia, he breaks into jewelry stores and museums, lifts diamond necklaces and priceless art, and escapes into the night on a motorcycle - often, with the police shooting at them.

But the pressure is always on David to dream up more audaciously dangerous heists. And meanwhile, the dives are taking their toll, both physically and mentally. David is beyond the point at which this "syndrome" forces most mediums to retire or face insanity or even death . . . and yet he can't imagine full-time life in the waking world, a world with no Nadia . . .

And so he decides to go down one more time - on the deepest dream-dive he's ever attempted - to settle his doubts and pull off one last spectacular job . . .

From the Hardcover edition.
