The book starts as a murder mystery with an undercurrent of unknown forces at work. As more is learned about the murder story line, the depth of the unknown political forces is revealed over time. Further, the main character starts off believing he is an insider in the political happenings – working undercover as a spy for one governmental group while also working for another. (Note that “governmental group” is not an accurate description since the “future” blends political control, economic administration, and geographic policing in ways that lead to turf battles and inter-agency oversight.) However, as the story unfolds the murder moves into the background story of inter-agency intrigue to identify and correct universal (bigger than global) corruption.
The only downside to the book is that it ends with the reader finally understanding the meaning behind the book’s title, but wanting to know how the master plan continues to unfold – stay tuned for the second book in the trilogy!
This is an excellent first outing in a book series that promises great things. Marks, the author, is a relatively new voice in the sci-fi world, but this is not the novel of a novice author. Well-written, tensely-plotted, and with great characterization, I think it would make a good TV series. I look forward to the next book in the series.
