Kill Process by William Hertling - what a treat! I've read Hertling's 4 "Singularity Series" novels and seen this writer develop. Although, Avogadro Corp (the first of the singularity series) was astonishingly fresh(smart, original, disturbing) and well written - for an new indie writer, Kill Process is well worth waiting for. Yeah, I'm gushing... I loved this novel! I'm also kind of blown away with how skillfully Hertling wrote in first-person, from a woman's point of view. The accuracy of the psychological ramifications of domestic abuse-violence are downright chilling. It's a risky subject to take on, especially in a novel, but Hurtling managed to use it to the story's advantage, and to shed some much needed light on it - thanks for that! Descriptions of computer hacking are deliciously geeky, yet accessible: no talking-down to the reader. Hertling shows us, hackers are people too. All-in-all, Kill Process is a top-notch novel, rivaling anything I've seen lately from the publishing houses.
