About this product
- DescriptionThe future is closer than you think. Imagine the things you most wish you could do: the adventures, the encounters, the indulgences. Imagine someone who can do things the way you dream of doing them. Now imagine that person sending you those experiences, recreating them inside your mind so you live every sensation more vividly than anything in the rest of your life; effort, risk, weight gain - just each and every moment, happening to you. KomViva: Only losers live their own leisure. A sensational new entertainment is taking the world by storm. At its heart is Solomon, a microchip implant that is a stolen military secret. Rees is a young man with a past that is coming to light; the woman they'd forced him to leave has made a shocking discovery and is w on a quest that puts her, the military, and a media empire on collision course. At stake is a tycoon's ambition, national security, and two young lives. With time running out, Rees has one final shot at freedom and a crucial decision to make. But how do you save yourself when your mind isn't entirely your own? Solomon's Keepers gives a close-up of the confrontation between techlogy and humanity - in one man's mind and a whole society's future. Solomon's Keepers will appeal to lovers of contemporary fiction and techthrillers. One reviewer put it in a category with JG Ballard, William Gibson, Michael Crichton, Michael Marshall Smith, Douglas Coupland and Chuck Palahniuk. The author would be delighted to pass muster there.
