Overview

"Ambitious. Well-paced. Riveting. [Casamassina] occasionally reaches moments of lyricism." ― Kirkus Reviews

Step into a near-future America overrun by competing tech giants and widespread social decay in this raunchy, violent, hilarious and disturbing science-fiction thriller.

You have 30 days until we take over, a cloaked figure warns the House of Representatives and then vanishes into a bolt of electricity. The same morning, Miyuki Mitsuraga, a struggling video game journalist, is inexplicably invited to interview the dark terrorist as the media spins into a frenzy and internet schadenfreude runs wild.

SOPHISTICATION follows her and four others, including a drug-addicted special agent, a seasoned senator, a quadriplegic, and a well-financed serial killer as their lives converge amid displays of technology and power well in advance of anything the world has ever seen.
