A detective, haunted by the death of his girlfriend, investigates an office building where a computer program has violently killed everyone.
The characters in this one aren’t really great, a detective and an assassin, but it’s so action-packed, and the violence is gruesome. I enjoyed the commentary on technology a later character brings up too. (As I sit here endlessly consuming digital entertainment.)
The story reminded me of an updated version of the old X-Files episode “Ghost in the Machine” There are a few annoying coincidences like the USB stick having Mel on it, the main character’s girlfriend’s name, and another thing at the end that would be a spoiler. The ending itself was a little annoying too.
I like action, and I like gore, and this book is packed with those.
**** Four out of Five Stars (Good)
