Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "As the world changes faster than humanity can adapt to it, a government insider chases a serial killer who makes her question what it means to be a hero in this electrifying novel from the author of Containment. With the world bordering on unprecedented technological change, Quinn Mitchell is an old-school, nine-to-five spy--an intelligence analyst for the CIA during the day, and a suburban wife and mother on evenings and weekends. After struggling with a personal tragedy, Quinn hopes to find redemption in her newest assignment: a series of bizarre, international assassinations where victims are found with numeric codes tattooed, burned, or carved into their flesh. As Quinn follows the killer's trail around the globe, always one body behind, she begins uncovering disturbing connections between the murders--and herself. Finding the killer will hinge on Quinn's ability to grapple with the Epoch Index, a massive database that can reveal almost anything about anyone--past, present or future--and which leads her to a shocking twist that makes her question everything she thought she knew. Christian Cantrell's inventive and exciting fiction explores unfamiliar worlds and alternative futures. A born prototyper, he has also written extensively on the evolution and future of technology, and he brings the full range of his scientific expertise to this captivating speculative thriller"--

    One gloomy forecast has it that in a few years readers—people with noses in books, absorbed in backs of cereal boxes if nothing else is around—will go back to being what they were centuries ago: a minority, trying to get out of the way as the computers running the world chatter to each other. That's one of the impressions left by this thoroughly readable, sometimes baffling kitchen-sink-of-a-novel. The first section is pleasantly conventional. CIA analyst Quinn Mitchell is tasked with hunting down a serial killer with a puzzling MO: each victim is younger than the one before. The explanation will be sort-of familiar to anyone who's seen Spielberg's Minority Report. It's around here that the narrative begins to flag a bit and starts talking to itself, with overuse of techno bafflegab—stenographic neural network—and sails into adventures in cryonics and time travel. Then what seems another novel is dropped in: a long sequence on Quinn's childhood and marriage. Readers entering without preconceptions—but with patience and loads of time—will relish it all.
