Wow. This book was excellent. I wasn't expecting much actually-- I was thinking pulp based on the description. (Bad description here on Amazon -- "Koontz" and "Crichton" ? ugh. "technothriller"? not really.)
I'll put this in the "lit" column. Elements of sci fi, and thriller, or maybe mystery too.
Ricardo's four best friends are found together, and dead-- but was it suicide, and if so how did they die? They had formed a start-up (partially funded with Ricardo's life savings) and were working on a machine-- some kind of 3D scanner, or time machine? The novel revolves around Ricardo trying to figure out what happened to his friends, what is the machine, various women (adult situations abound), Ricardo's ill father Diego. (Diego is a Spanish novelist-- Ricardo reads several of his father's novels, and the stories of his father's novels are interspersed in this novel. A nod to Italo Calvino-- who is name checked.)
