There are some nice little hints tucked away here and there in the language, which I'm hoping will play out interestingly in the next book of the series. Clearly there's a super duper conspiracy or possibly conspiracies, and I like that in a story.
Out of the gate, Ward has his own self-imposed obstacles to overcome. He’s guilt-ridden over the events that landed him in prison, and seems to accept his fate as if he were on death row. When Ward is given his “golden ticket” of a task as a private detective, it seems like the best of all worlds. Of course, nothing is ever so easy as all that, and Ward finds himself going deep down the rabbit hole of conspiracy and danger.
Williams injects a realism into this splendid science fiction story that is reminiscent of some of the best in the genre. The Cronian Incident offers a unique view of the future-imperfect through the eyes of the flawed by likable character Jeremiah Ward. Fans of the genre will definitely want to pick up the slow-boil science fiction mystery and tuck in for a good read.
Nightmares and dreams vie for supremacy as Jeremiah Ward is subjected to sensory deprivation in a futuristic solitary confinement. The prisons-as-profit-centers of today have given way to convict labor laws where employers contract for what are essentially slaves to be used as they see fit. Ward is a disgraced Interpol agent who was very good at his job but made a huge mistake that cost many lives, but he gets a second chance. An important member of one of the most powerful families has gone missing, and he's tasked to find out what happened.
Ward's journey of discovery has twists and turns that surprise the reader but none that make us feel we've been cheated. Anything resembling deus ex machina is tightly woven into the plot and makes complete sense in the scope of the novel. The science is advanced yet sound and consistent.
The Cronian Incident is easy to read, although it demands close attention, and I anxiously await a followup.
The only problems I really had was that, even though the author explains the tech and stuff, a lot of the hard science stuff can be a little hard to understand at first. That, and there were some grammar/punctuation/spelling errors here and there, but other than that I had no issues.
On a scale of 1 to 5, I give The Cronian Incident a 4.7 out of 5 (which on Amazon is basically a 5). Pick it up, and be transported.
