"Steinman's novel combines engrossing sci-fi elements, riveting thrills and a fascinating study of the human mind. The main characters are complex and likable--even dark and twisted Eva. Without taking the reader out of the story's flow, flashbacks explore each character's past in detail and lay the groundwork for the plot's twists and turns. The result is an exceptional tale that's suspenseful, gritty and endearing. A terrific sci-fi thriller that grips the reader from beginning to end." --Kirkus Reviews
From the Author
If you enjoy interesting characters, you'll like Little Deadly Things.
Readers who raved had that in common. That's the focus--people.Little Deadly Things
begins in the reading present and then moves back in time to examine the childhood of three main characters. The outer tale is a technothriller, high-tech sci-fi. The inner story is an exploration of how adults cope with the angry residue of a childhood time served under abusive or feckless parents.
Never read a sci-fi novel? You may be the biggest fan!
For many, this was their first science-fiction thriller, and they discovered that a good story in any genre is about people. In fact, the most ardent reviews were from folks that said, "I never read this genre, but I loved this book."
Whatever your taste, I hope you enjoy.
