This is the story of True Ailie. He is recovering from a Virtual Reality addiction and in danger of losing his job as an ace reporter. Then a friend of his along with an eleven year old shanty orphan are killed with a futuristic bomb that tracks DNA to assure success. Now he must put together the pieces and find out why they were killed and how it ties in with an earthquake in Japan. Hampered by a corrupt police chief, it's not going to be as simple as it looks.

This was an interesting idea. Set within a dystopian future, the world has changed from how we know it. Some countries have gone and others have been created. True is interesting as the damaged hero, still lingering after his ex wife, recovering from a Virtual Reality addiction and trying to crack open a worldwide news scoop. This is a lesson on becoming too reliant and therefore ending up hooked on VR. In places it was confusing and the different strands were hard to keep up, but don't let that put you off as it all comes together rather nicely at the end and you will go 'Ohhh yeah!'. It is a little bit like 'Inception' in its approach and I rather liked that, it made it seem a little different to the books I normally read. This was a good techno thriller and I will be happy to read more of this genre and more from the author.

I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

Not sure about this one. A good book if you are into cyberspace novels. I unfortunately am not and found myself skip reading at times. Sadly I also found the ending somewhat predictable. The only thing I can positively say is that the story held me to the end.

A surprising read for myself as i was not expecting writing of this standard from a free download. The story itself weaves through a stylistic dystopian future with a interesting writing style which uses a creative metaphorical style to really grab you. Yes i would add this to one of my top reads of last year.

If you like The Matrix, you'll love this. Adam Penenberg is a real life journalist writing about a fictional journalist- True Ailey, who is caught up in a strange world where you can't tell what's real and what isn't. Reality isn't pretty- poverty, disaster, murder, broken dreams. The virtual world is dangerous too, there are people that don't want True there and they don't care who they take down to get rid of him. In between, there's a lost love, the battle against addictions, and most of all- the unwavering search for the truth, no matter what the cost.

A roller-coaster ride that will keep you turning pages. The writing skillfully keeps you a little off-balance and that's exactly what brings you into True's off-balance world.

A great read!
