KILLING TIME is a convincing and well-written look into an all too plausible future. (SFX MAGAZINE)
The bestselling author of THE ALIENIST and ANGEL OF DARKNESS puts a very special spin on a mystery thriller set twenty-five years in the future. A contemporary successor to such dystopian classics as BRAVE NEW WORLD and 1984.See all Product Description

This book is already dated... I would advise readers to stay well away from this and to wait until Mr Carr writes a follow-up to the aforementioned titles (if he ever does!)
This does not. Some of the ideas are good, but it all feels a touch lazy. It involves an alinated rebel group fighting against convention using new technologies. This group contains; a psychologist, twins, a strong woman who is good with guns, and a genius with both a disability and childhood traumas. Sound at all familiar?
It is time Mr Carr used a new template rather than catapulting His existing one into the future and glazing it with a shiny sci-fi sheen. ...
A novel set in the future (but not far enough in the future for the technology to be in any way believable) with a massive nod towards Verne's 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea, it simply doesn't work. It is almost all plot with ridiculously self-righteous characters who continually spout trite psychological tripe.
It's a very easy read and I did wonder how it would turn out but sadly even the ending is terrible.
Just plain silly.
