    I enjoyed this fast-paced techno thriller. There are some minor mistakes and inconveniences, but not enough to spoil the yarn. I liked the in-depth descriptions, which help set the scenes. The author allows us an insight into a world 'All Watched Over By Machines of Loving Grace'. A recommended read.
