It is ten years since the attack that reduced Pittsburgh to ashes. Today all that remains is the Archive: an interactive digital record of the city and its people. John Dominic Blaxton is a survivor, one of the ‘lucky ones’ who escaped the blast. Crippled by the loss of his wife and unborn daughter, he spends his days immersed in the Archive with the ghosts of yesterday.

It is there he finds the digital record of a body: a woman, lying face down, half buried in mud. Who is she… and why is someone hacking into the system and deleting the record of her seemingly unremarkable life? This question will drag Dominic from the darkest corners of the past into a deadly and very present nightmare.

The first thing I should say about this book is there are a number of graphic sex scenes. So if that isn’t your thing then you may want to avoid this book. But apart from that I enjoyed it. It was one of those Snow Crash, The Forever Watch type books. Basically its a futuristic murder mystery.

Throughout the book the main character is trying to get over a disaster in which he lost his wife. I would have liked to know more about exactly what happened but its really not that important to the story (well the disaster is important but spoilers). I actually enjoyed this book and I will definitely be looking for more books like it.

    Do you know how a Pittsburgher gives directions? We give landmarks of places that used to be there. It is, very much, a Pittsburgh book of places that used to be there. So, for me, it added an extra depth that wouldn’t be available to others. I’m glad you enjoyed it. By the way, the word on the street here is that it’s been optioned for a movie.

      Thats really funny. I’m terrible with street names, the only way I can give directions around Glasgow is by using the book shops.

      You know, I think this could be a pretty good movie. Its nowhere near as science-y as some of the other books like it.

          I agree with you. I think it would be a very good movie. Though there were a lot of graphic scenes in it so it would be interesting to see how they deal with all that stuff.
