Product Description


Multilayered and engrossing, Mind Fuck's many shades of gray will entice and enthrall.
-- Chris Owen, author of "Adagio" and "Bareback"

Product Description

There are no bad guys or good guys. There are only better guys and worse guys.

One of the worse guys is Val Toreth. In a world in which torture is a legitimate part of the investigative process, he works for the Investigation and Interrogation Division, where his colleagues can be more dangerous than the criminals he investigates.

One of the better guys is Keir Warrick. His small corporation, SimTech, is developing a "sim" system that places users in a fully immersive virtual reality. A minnow in a murky and dangerous pond, he is only beginning to discover how many compromises may be required for success.

Their home is the dark future dystopia of New London. A totalitarian bureaucracy controls the European Administration, sharing political power with the corporations. The government uses violence and the many divisions of the feared Department of Internal Security to maintain control and crush resistance. The corporations fight among themselves, using lethal force under the euphemism of "corporate sabotage," uniting only to resist attempts by the Administration to extend its influence over them.

Toreth and Warrick are more natural enemies than allies. But mutual attraction and the fight for survival can create unlikely bonds.

5.0 out of 5 stars Somewhere between Good and Evil 6 Jan 2008
By Alex
Make no mistake: these guys aren't nice. Torturer, interrogator and investigator Val Toreth has been aptly described as a sociopath, and it could be argued that Keir Warrick, high-powered corporate businessman, is no better, if on other terms.

Both men clash when Keir Warrick's company presents its virtual reality machine, which Val Toreth's government branch could really use for their own - sinister - ends. When several murders appear to be linked with the machines, Val Toreth gets to investigate the case. Keir Warrick fights for nothing less that the company he founded, and the virtual reality he appears to be more than a little addicted to. Plus, the company urgently needs another round of funding from its sponsors and investors, and a full-blown scandal could rip the whole thing apart.

Toreth and Warrick share a strong, physical attraction to each other, even though they are at odds, and sleeping with a suspect and/or witness isn't the most professional thing Toreth has ever done. This is not a happy love story, both men take advantage of each other, both agree it's "just sex", but nevertheless they end up as allies, both brilliant, manipulative, arrogant, fantastically detailed and intense men.

This is a corporate/tech thriller set in a dystopian future where torture and execution is part of the normal justice system. The writing, plotting, psychology, and the very intense erotic moments in the book provided one of the most satisfying reads I've had in a while (started yesterday afternoon and stopped, interrupted by sleep, only at noon). I do hope the other parts of the series come out soon.

5.0 out of 5 stars one of the best things I've ever read 25 Mar 2008
Whether you categorise this under scifi or urban fantasy or erotica or gay - because of the relationship between the two main characters - it remains one of the best books I have ever read. I'm so pleased to see it in print. The world Manna builds is uncompromising and often harsh, but also littered with human frailty and passion and humor and confusion and determination. There is an excellent cast of other characters, who prove to be far more than subsidiary, with a refreshing balance of men and women. The plot is good and just challenging enough to balance the relationship development. The sex is hot beyond heat, though in my opinion that's because of the connection the reader makes with the characters of Toreth and Kier. It's far more complex than just a gay, erotic affair. Anyway, it's not often I try to read more slowly as a book continues because I'm depressed at getting to the end! Read it if you like strong, flawed men who are desperately and passionately drawn to each other, and a mature plot.

5.0 out of 5 stars I cannot recommend this book highly enough. 6 Aug 2009
By 72308
The complex plot is worth a five-star review by itself - the fact that the world she has set her story in is so richly realised, and that her characters are so subtle and engaging are added bonuses!
