Wow. A book of awesome ideas. As I was reading the last chapter my wife told me to quit saying ‘oh my god’. More please Mr Raymond!

Review by: Bob Cunningham on April 19, 2012 : (no rating)
Intriguing near-future SciFi thriller based upon an interesting "what if" idea, which a plot built upon both expected and unexpected consequences.

Marred, however, by a certain amount of awkward writing. There are some awkward POV and scene shifts; and just enough speaker attributions left out of dialog so that readers may not always be certain which character is speaking. Some character motivations may may not be all that convincing.

Nonetheless, an intriguing read.
