WHILE STAR WARS and STAR TREK seeded J. Daniel Sawyer's passion for the unknown, his childhood in academia gave him a deep love of history and an obsession with how the future emerges from the past. This obsession led him through adventures in the film industry, the music industry, venture capital firms in the startup culture of Silicon Valley, and a career creating novels and audiobooks exploring the worlds that assemble themselves in his head. His travels with bohemians, burners, historians, theologians, and inventors led him eventually to a rural exile where he uses the quiet to write, walk on the beach, and manage a pair of production companies that bring innovative stories to the ears of audiences across the world.

This is a complex story about political intrigue, personal survival and poker. The poker is actually kind of minor, but it makes for a sort of bookended symbol for the story.
Recommended for fans of political thrillers, space opera and erotica. If you don't at least tolerate all of these genres, this probably won't be for you.

"Like" is such a strong word, but in this case, it is terribly insufficient. I truly "love" this book! This is a future-set, hard sci-fi political espionage thriller that I freely admit I didn't dive into at first because it wasn't what I expected. I'm glad I went back and gave it a second chance because Dan showed me with this book and others of his that I have enjoyed, that nothing is what it seems and that expectations are meant to be shattered.
