Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for the Andersson Dexter series:

"these novels ... provid[e] lots of pulpy goodness with a much lighter helping of quote "high literary merit.'"
-- Adam Pracht, StarShipSofa


Praise for Act of Will:

"the characters and the society of her virtually integrated world that make this novel truly shine. Her characters breathe and feel, are flawed, and have sticky, messy problems in a world where lines of gender, law and reality have blurred and often disappeared."
-- A.F. Stewart, author of Killers and Demons

From the Author

I'd recommend the Andersson Dexter series (Act of Will is book 2) to readers who enjoy hard, technological SF, with a significant mystery element. 

Act of Will contains adult language and themes, LGBT content and significant violence. Also, expect some personal political and social commentary.

Format: Kindle Edition
Act of Will by M. Darusha Wehm is the second book in the author's Andersson Dexter novels and is as wonderful if not better than the first book, Self Made. It is a cyber-tech sci-fi novel rich in fascinating characters living in a world where the virtual and real have melded.

The book continues the story of detective Andersson Dexter (Dex) of the Cubicle Men, now in the middle of a complicated relationship with fellow squad member Annabelle Lewis. A missing co-worker leads him into an investigation and puts him on the trail of a serial killer.

The crime plotline of the book is fairly standard serial murderer story, but the author brings a fresh angle to it by tying both the killer and the crimes into her sci-fi world. She keeps the cat-and-mouse perspective creepy and suspenseful and the killer walks in the nameless shadows until the very end.

But as brilliantly as Ms. Wehm weaves her thriller, it is the characters and the society of her virtually integrated world that make this novel truly shine. Her characters breathe and feel, are flawed, and have sticky, messy problems in a world where lines of gender, law and reality have blurred and often disappeared. It is a future world you can see evolving from our own, but one in which people are still seeking love and escape.

This is the second novel starring the character Andersson Dexter, but it can be easily read as a standalone novel (though I recommend reading both just for the delight of it). Act of Will it is a stellar book

Format: Kindle Edition
I love detective novels and I love sci-fi. Ms. Whelm has put the two together in the Andersson Dexter series.
