Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "2150: An unnamed police detective receives a message from Akira Kimura, the preeminent scientist and living legend who vanquished a world-ending meteor thirty years ago. As Akira's former head of security-and perhaps her only friend-he is one of the few who knows of the sacrifices that were necessary for her to complete Ascalon, the cosmic ray that neutralized the global threat. Ascalon's Scar remains emblazoned in the sky, a permanent reminder of humanity's close call with extinction. When he arrives at Akira's home and finds her methodically dismembered, he must dig into their shared past-with the help of a mysterious synesthesia that no one else knows he has-to find her killer. Through a future of underwater cities, floating suburbs, skin-dyed teenagers, and a wealth gap that has outlived a near-apocalypse, McKinney's cinematic novel is the perfect blend of dark cyberpunk and thrilling detective procedural, all while posing the ultimate question of what we are willing to sacrifice to engineer the world we want"--

    In this first installment of a projected sf noir trilogy set more than a century in the future, humanity is still pulling itself back together after a near-catastrophic event. Akira Kimura, the woman who quite literally saved the world, is dead: murdered. The narrator has known the victim for decades; he used to be in charge of her personal security. Now he's a cop, and he's determined to nail her killer. Although it has plenty of science-fiction elements (personal artificial intelligences, massive undersea living complexes), this is at its heart a traditional murder mystery, much in the same way Ben H. Winters' The Last Policeman (2012) was a cop story set in a science-fictional environment. McKinney gives us a grisly murder; a cop with a history of violence; a surly, dim-witted police captain; an assortment of unsavory supporting characters; and some really effective twists. Readers who like mysteries with a futuristic feel will love this one, but the novel also works as straight-up sf. Copyright 2021 Booklist Reviews.
