Product Description

Product Description

“I’m glad my life came to an end. That was when it really began.”

In the near future, a horrific pandemic known as The Falling has decimated mankind, leaving just a few cities standing. In a desperate bid to prevent the extinction of our race, technology has given rise to an entirely new species: Holo Sapiens.

Those fortunate enough to be able to afford it can be resurrected after death as holographic projections immune to disease, hunger and time itself. But as the human survivors of The Falling make their last defiant attempt to find a cure before the last cities fall and political power is passed to the holosaps, the discovery of a “kill-switch” that could see Holo Sapiens consigned to history changes the world. As the prospect of war looms between the living and the “after-living”, it is down to one woman to find the kill-switch before mankind and Holo Sapiens attempt to erase each other from existence...

REVIEW

Praise for Dean Crawford:

"The fossilized remains of a 7,000-year-old creature dug from the sands of the Negev Desert in Israel become the bones of contention in Dean Crawford's fast-paced debut thriller... The book neatly threads together a wild variety of plotlines." - Wall Street Journal

“… cleverly introduced premise… assured pacing and plotting…” - Publishers Weekly

“The action is frenetic, in the vein of Matthew Reilly’s Scarecrow series. Crawford is an able storyteller who smoothly orchestrates the plot’s twists and turns… ” Kirkus Reviews

“… brilliant high-concept, high-octane thriller….” - The Guardian

"A fast-paced and entertaining yarn." - Melbourne Age

"Partly mythical read, part thriller this pacy tale is a page turner guaranteed to keep you up late." - The Sun

"Get the cameras rolling—Indiana Jones meets Alien. What a combination of mystery, suspense, and unspeakable horror. I loved it!" - R.L. Stine

“This is an amazingly good, intelligently told novel by an exciting new British author.” - Eurocrime

"Earth-shattering intrigue, hyperdrive action and a desperate race to save humanity, cranked up to the max with scarily realistic science and apocalyptic religion thrown in for good measure . . . a major new talent has hit the mystery thriller scene!" - Scott Mariani

4.0 out of 5 stars Thrilling pageturner 2 Jan 2014
By Kate TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition
Humanity is in steep decline, its numbers destroyed by The Falling, a virulent disease that gets its name from the flesh that rots off the body and from the final, fast act of death itself. While the last populations seal themselves into quarantined cities, the very rich and powerful can benefit from a solution to the increasing risk of this dreadful death thanks to hi-tech business Re-Volution. With the brain itself tagged with instructions, the instant of death is also the moment of rebirth. The body is resurrected as a hologram, lauded by some as a new species in its own right - the holo sapiens - while denigrated by poorer homo sapiens as holosaps. As the numbers of holosaps increase and living, breathing humans decrease, a movement grows to pass power to this new species. But what if there could be a cure to The Falling? What if holo sapiens are evolving? Is it too late for homo sapiens?

In Holo Sapiens, the extremely talented thriller writer Dean Crawford creates an exciting blend of science fiction, medical thriller, apocalyptic drama and mystery. This recipe, when blended well, is difficult to resist and Crawford certainly succeeds here. Focusing on London, the opening pages bring to horrible life the moment when Britain's capital seals itself off from its plagued citizens, a moment that coincides with visionary Professor Anderson's awareness that holo sapiens are more than they seem. But his attempts to pull the plug are thwarted and, as the novel movies into the future, we witness the repercussions of the proliferation of corpses reborn as holographic life forms.

Arianna Volkov is a living psychologist whose job is to ease holo sapiens into their new transparent existence.

3.0 out of 5 stars pretty good 21 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Now let me just state that I HATE zombie romps. I never watch the films & avoid the books like the plague. I only read this book because it was free (sorry, Dean) BUT I was pleasantly surprised. Ignoring the zombification of the population, there was an excellent plot, deftly written. Also, the cause of the zombie like plague was ingenuitive (I know it's not a real word, but give me a break, I'm not an author!). Instead of the usual "oh it's a virus" with no explanation, Dean Crawford came up with the idea of a fungus being the root of it all & offered a detailed description of it & how it worked. Brilliant!
I don't want my loathing of zombies to detract from the main plot, which isn't overly original (sorry again, Dean), but it is solid and the characters are believable. This book kept me up late as I couldn't put it down sometimes!
All in all a good read.
