Disciple of The Dog is the first title in R. Scott Bakker's Discilple Manning series. It was first published in 2010.

The Enlightened Dead is a rumoured followup, although there are more rumoures that it may never be published due to the low volume of sales that Disciple of The Dog has generated.

Premise[]

No matter how hard he drinks, gambles, or womanizes, Disciple Manning simply cannot forget: not a word spoken, not an image glimpsed, not a pain suffered. Disciple Manning has total recall. Whatever he hears, he can remember with 100% accuracy. He can play it back in his head for an infinite number of times without a single change. This ability makes him a dangerously unorthodox private investigator.

When a New Jersey couple hires Manning to find their daughter, who joined a religious cult before vanishing in a small rust-belt town called Ruddick, he finds himself embroiled in a mystery that will pit his unnatural ability to remember against his desperate desire to forget.
