Sisters Of Glass [NOOK Book]

Overview

Karl Latte doesn’t like the twenty-first century. Not recombinants, not Ultimate Reality, not Digitally Mastered Immortals. He doesn’t like that people are disappearing, or that he stands to lose the only thing in the world that matters to him. Most of all he dislikes the talent he was born with, the talent that’s damned him—the ability to see into minds.

Overview

Karl Latte doesn’t like the twenty-first century. Not recombinants, not Ultimate Reality, not Digitally Mastered Immortals. He doesn’t like that people are disappearing, or that he stands to lose the only thing in the world that matters to him. Most of all he dislikes the talent he was born with, the talent that’s damned him—the ability to see into minds. A forty-year-old ex-cop with bad knees and an arrhythmic heart, he may be the last man in 2030 L.A. without a satcom implanted deep in his cortex. 21st century Luddite with the skills of a gun-for-hire blackmailed back to take over a case that’s left nine agents parted out, he is at once scrambling for his life. The assignment takes him to Plat 66, a sea platform owned by the genetic conglomerate, Genesistems. His task: find Romy, one of the last surviving first generation recombinants. Tall, slender, gifted, she's the apogee of genetic perfection—everything he loathes in a woman. All Karl wants is to go home—but before he can he’s got to get Romy off the plat alive. Easier said than done. Genesystems wants them dead, the Army of God is hell-bent to sink the plat, a sadistic cabal is murdering Sisters two a night, and a 21st century demon lurks just out of sight, craving possession of them both. Most alarming for Karl, as he grows to know this appealing patented life form, he finds his most cherished prejudices teetering as his concept of what is human and what is not skews bewilderingly.

Meet the Author

Here is where a writer is supposed to tell you all about the exciting things he's done. How he's wrestled crocodiles in Tanzania, bounced drunks in an Amsterdam brothel, smuggled guns to Cuba and sat in as drummer for the Who in Tokyo. Well, I've never done any of that, but hey, nobody's perfect.

My life is much like yours. I'm just another soul shoe horned into a meat puppet biding my time until I return to the one.

These stories are just dreams I lived. If I've done my job even passably well, then you may live them, too.

    Want to zip into the skin of a character and live an adventure? You can with this one.

    So many novels keep you at arm's length from the characters... Well, this one doesn't. I could step right into the shoes of these main characters and live every moment, every scene, every line. The dialog is so real you can hear it. The story really stayed with me. Intense but about decent people... flawed, but decent.

    Cyberpunk crossed with Raymond Chandler equals one white-knuckle roller coaster ride!

    Most Sci Fi today, like WWZ and Robocopalypse give you dozens of stories by characters you never get to know. They TELL you a story. This is different. In this one you LIVE a story. You get to know a man and a woman completely... their emotions, their fears, their faults, their passions---all of them. And when they are slammed together it's a hell of a crash---one that changes them and the world.

    It may happen this way.

    How will genetic manipulation change our world? Will GM humans be persons or products? What makes someone human? Hard questions. What if a man repulsed by the modern world finds himself caring deeply about a patented life form? a life form attractive as any woman who has ever lived? The prose was easy to read so don't be put off by the sci fi classification. All the best fiction is about people first.

    What a trip! What a romance!

    I don't usually read Sci Fi but I happened to try this one and I can't believe what I've been missing! I loved it. It's really a Sci Fi romance because it's about two people amid troubled times finding each other in the last place they would have expected. The characterization is deep, the dialog honest and the scenes searingly intense. I'm now a sci fi fan.

    Short... Sharp... Shock...

    What happens when two people who hate each other are forced to stay together to stay alive in 2020 Los Angeles? What happens when human being are treated like patented life forms? What happens when one man just... won't... give up?

    Excellent read.

    I was thoroughly transported into this world. This was a very thought provoking long novel. Scifi, detective, murder mystery, thriller, this one covers it all. I hate mysteries because I can usually figure it out by the 3rd chapter. Yhis writer kept me engaged for over 1,000 pages. He ranks up there with Greg Bear. Great use of speculative science.
