Cinco de Mayo

Secrets: some feel freed having them out.
Others will kill to keep them.

On May 5, in a flash of pain, every man, woman and child on the planet receives a second set of memories. A new name, a new language, a whole new life slips into their minds, along side their own.

In Chicago, a transit worker knows enough about the Aryan Brotherhood to mark him for death.

In Abu Dhabi, a playboy experiences modern day slavery.

In New York an advertising executive shares the memories of a blind railroad worker in China.

In this transparent world of instant intimacy, no one is left untouched... Everyone has secrets!

Book Trailer


Praise for Cinco de Mayo

“His writing flows naturally, his characters speak as if they were real people, and his setting seems so real that I wouldn’t be surprised to find it on a normal, everyday roadmap. I wound up being firmly convinced that this place, these people, are real and living just out of sight, somewhere.” — Dan L. Hollifield

Reviews

SF Chronicles

"Cinco de Mayo may not be a novel that sits in the heartland of science fiction, but it is genre. Itís more of a gateway novel, one that can be used to introduce readers to sf. Itís a quick, easy and thought-provoking read. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Cinco de Mayo is not just a good book, itís a book worth reading" -Ian Sales (MORE)

Innsmouth Free Press

"Martineck uses Cinco de Mayo to put forth an fantastic idea and makes you believe it could happen." -Mike Griffiths (MORE)

CM: Canadian Review of Materials

"...Well-written, this novel holds the interest of the reader and is definitely not a Space Opera or something set in the distant future. Instead, it's a series of small, human stories set in today's world that has been turned upside down..." — Ronald Hore (MORE)

Parajunkee's View

"...The idea behind this science fiction number was very interesting. How weird would it be to trade memories with someone? Learn every single possible memory in someone's head. On top of the interesting idea behind the story, the character development was very well laid out..." — Parajunkee's View (MORE)

Review by Don D'Ammassa

"This first novel has a very interesting idea, somewhat reminiscent of Robert J. Sawyer’s Flashforward.  Some mysterious events causes everyone on Earth to acquire the memories of another human being – apparently randomly – as well as keeping their own.  This might not seem all that monumental, but as we all know, everyone has secrets and it’s unsettling to know that someone out there knows everything we know..." — Don D'Ammassa (MORE)
