In a near-future where technology has rendered reality obsolete, homicide detective Travis Nolan is an expert at solving cases using the unthinkable power of Augmented Reality Contact Lenses. On the edge of burnout and haunted by the unsolved disappearance of his wife from her job at the Federal Augmented Reality Agency, Nolan's world is shattered when he is sent to investigate a murder at the powerful organization's headquarters.

Really enjoyed this sci fi mash up, think iRobot meets Minority Report.
Clever plot with surprising twists. I would happily download more of Dennis Kunders work in the future.

4.0 out of 5 stars scifi with a detective theme 23 Jun 2012
By Woody
Verified Purchase
Fast paced detective/ scifi novel that whilst a bit obvious at times has some good twists.

Situated in a world view where it is the norm to wear ARC, augmented reality glasses.Detective Nolan gets called to investigate a murder at the federal augmented reality agency. The last time he was there he got suspended for hitting the director when he wouldn't tell him where his wife had gone. She is still missing 2 years later and without an explanation wonders why he has been specifically required by the Director.

5.0 out of 5 stars Detective story in a sci-fi future 6 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase
I got this when it was free but would happily pay for another book by this author.

Set in a time where everyone sees a version of reality presented to them through augmented reality contact lenses, this police detective investigation story is a gripping read. Very believeable and full of strong characterisation the story keeps you hooked.

Using the augmented insight provided by the lenses our detective can easily tell when when subjects are telling truth or lies, but is the reality he sees always truly real?

5.0 out of 5 stars How real is your reality? 5 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase
A really good read with some twists that challenge what it is we value in our reality.
The idea of VR contact lenses is probably not to far fetched as we read that even Microsoft is looking at augmented reality eye wear in this generation.

4.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing 2 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase
This is a very readable futuristic detective story, set at a time on Earth when virtually everyone wears special eye lenses which put them in a virtual world bearing little resemblance to reality. The story itself revolves around what happens when the organisation which controls the lenses content goes bad.
Plenty of good plot twists and a touching human angle too.
Recommended.
