Highly recommended - lots of thrills!
This is a really fun book--noir sci-fi with an atmosphere so thick you can taste and feel it, and sharp, fast-paced writing. It appeals to a broad audience, whether you're a lover of sci-fi, detective fiction, or noir thrillers. It's got it all. What I especially loved is that the story contains a truly scary, tough-as-razors female villain--not something you see every day!

I’m not normally a huge fan of the science fiction/fantasy
I’m not normally a huge fan of the science fiction/fantasy genre. I want to be, but I have so many preferences I’m too picky for most of them to satisfy me. Occasionally I’ll come across one that makes me happy and hits all my buttons. Such was the case with this book. I got this as an e-book when it was on sale and I thought it sounded pretty interesting, and it got bonus points for being a mystery as well. I’m really glad I took a chance, because I really loved this book. Everything was perfectly done here – the characters, the mystery, the world-building.Was this review helpful?

It begins in the year 2012 with NYPD detective Paul Donner and his wife Elise being killed in a quick-mart. It then jumps 50 years in the future, where the ‘Shift’ has occurred that has caused DNA in some corpses to reverse and begin aging backwards. These newly reborn people (derogatively called ‘Reebs’) are the new underclass in New York City, which has been quarantined in a bubble referred to as “the Blister”. When Paul’s body starts to regenerate his body is removed from his grave and rushed to a hospital. Upon release Paul finds a purpose in this new and confusing world by researching his death and trying to track down his killer.
I really enjoyed reading this book and will look forward to more from this author.
