Ever hear of SIMS chips? How about nanobots, or simulation chambers where the surreal becomes real? Well, get ready for some new vocabulary when you read "The Trust" by Shira Anthony and Verona Keyes.
Meet agent Jake Anders of The Trust. Jake is your average next-door neighbor. He’s an expert scientist and works hard at his job. He goes to the gym, rides a motorcycle for fun. He goes camping with friends. Jake is also an expert in black ops, and an expert killer. Jake is single, and he’s in love—in love with a ghost.
Trace Michelson, before his murder, embedded a SIM chip, with all of his life experience, all of his scientific knowledge, the sum total of himself, even his deep love for Jake Anders. It is this chip, implanted in Jake after Trace’s death that simultaneously comforts, and bedevils him. This may sound like a novel for technology wonks, but at its core it is a story of love. It is this overarching love—transcending time and space that propels Jake to reach out beyond the possible, and believe. To this end, Jake must engage in a life and death struggle to save not only The Trust, and himself, but also the man he loves.
Shira Anthony and Verona Keyes have written a thriller that, to this reader appears eerily plausible.
