I would definitely recommend this.
Note to readers (and Amazon!) - when you first view this (at least on my Android Kindle app) it automatically opens up at Chapter One. Beware - there is an action-packed Prologue you need to read first!
The company agrees to finance an election if they are allowed to influence the curriculum in schools. Intracom has produced the search engine software Lightspeed, which is already installed on nearly 70% of existing laptops/computers. The search engine regulates what the searcher sees, ergo defining and controlling their information gathering and the results of their info requests.
In this case it has been designed to eliminate and distort info searches on evolution.
This is a fictional company but the way they determine how people or what people read when they use a search engine is equivalent to our very own Google.
The company Intracom is part of a large religious group/cult, who do not believe in the theory of evolution. Intracom is also the publisher of school books in certain areas of the curriculum. The content in those books has also been changed in regards to the teaching of evolution.
Again this is reminiscent of Google's almost all encompassing tentacles in every area and the school book publishing sub-plot is arrow shot straight at Texas. They also want to eradicate certain scientific aspects of our learning and replace them with religious beliefs. They are well-known for having a stronghold over content in US school textbooks and are responsible for the publication of the majority of textbooks.
The censorship of information flow and the manipulation of the masses via global technology and media giants is something which is already upon us in a big way.Read more ›
The Liverpool that Erasmus Jones is living in is a depressed and near-ruined city, suffering a financial crisis. Abby's school, along with most in the city, is suffering strikes as staff cannot be paid. Mayor Lynch has no idea how he can keep the city afloat, until a lifeline is thrown from an unlikely source. Kirk Bovind is a software billionaire who was born in Liverpool before leaving to make his fortune in America. Now he has returned to his birthplace and is offering to fund the city's school system - but there is a price to pay. Bovind is a believer of the Third Wave, and Stephen Francis was also a follower. His software, which will be installed in every school, offers a religious message which denies the scientific, such as the theory of evolution, in favour of answers based solely on faith and superstition.
Meanwhile, Erasmus Jones finds that reporter Rachel Harrop, from the Liverpool Echo, is also interested in the story of Kirk Bovind and the missing man.Read more ›
In short, a fantastic book I found difficult to put down. Erasmus is a hero I look forward to encountering again.
Just to echo an earlier reviewer, the kindle opens the book at chapter 1 and you have to access the menu to get to the prologue.

Absolutely appalling. Every page has grammatical and spelling mistakes. Reads like a total amateur has written it. Avoid at all costs.Published 20 days ago by Mr J T Pinder
Nearly every page contains typos or grammatical errors - this spoils the reading experience of what is otherwise a quite good plotPublished 4 months ago by Lindsey909975
A decent story, a likeable main character, let down by appalling grammar and punctuation! I wonder who they get to proof read these digital books? Year 6 children could do better.Published 10 months ago by ukgalch
