Book Description

Attorney Jill Shannon's clients include Blick Pharmaceuticals, which is pursuing research into life-extending drugs. Blick has reawakened the homicidal maniac Payback, whom they created twenty years earlier, to literally kill off the competition by targeting research scientists. Jill's boyfriend, Paul Gibson, one of the scientists, is forced to inject them with an intelligence booster. Suddenly they find themselves in the middle of a war--a war over what it means to be human (and more than human). Can any of them survive?

5.0 out of 5 stars First-rate read, big ideas January 9, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If authors Broderick and Lamar's goal was page-turning storytelling with lots of thought-provoking ideas, they have succeeded brilliantly with this book.

The story opens in the present day with a disturbing incident (perhaps almost too disturbing for some readers), which shows us a psychopathic character bent on disrupting scientific research. From there, the story moves quickly toward its main theme, which is healing. To avoid spoilers, I won't say more, other than to advise readers that might be put off by the harsh opening sequence to read on. Ultimately the story is about healing, profound healing, of both body and mind.

The writing is clear and flows nicely, and the plot is engaging, with surprising twists right up to the satisfying end. There are plenty of well-written action sequences, realistic courtroom and legal scenes, and sometimes humorous, but always interesting, romantic elements. It will appeal to readers of all genres, not just SF fans. It certainly is science fiction, especially toward the end, but thankfully the book is scientifically informed, without being overly technical.

With the title Post Mortal Syndrome, it's not giving much away to say that the book invites us to contemplate a future, possibly within many readers' lifetime, where humanity has begun to take radical control over our own biology. There are discussions of some of the individual and societal impacts that such technology might have, and the story even moots ideas about possible ways to ameliorate some of the problems. Give this a read.

Great story. Just a few mistakes, eg.
Paul ran to Jill's house from his then went to the curb to get a diaphragm? A few typos. I guess editors don't exist anymore.

1.0 out of 5 stars it all went so blah May 4, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a great blend of actual places and fiction. The characters are developed and intriguing.There were many story lines to keep interested in and it has a good fast pace.

The structure of jumping between sub-stories was excellent. The language was written by a petulant teenager, needless name calling. There was much anger, that left me uncomfortable. The shock points were neatly wrapped-up in a happy ending. It is a poor story because it tried for shock and unexpected and failed.

Don't waste your time.
