Not a Patterson book. Written by Neil McMahon, that's why it isn't as good as other Pattersons - because it isn't one.

Publishers license the author's name these days, and will keep publishing a series even when the original author is dead, just by saying "So and So WITH and the name of the real person who wrote it. It's a scam.

They've done this with Cussler, Ludlum and Patterson to name a few. Watch for it.

Seems to be more like Gattaca meets Imposter meets Minority Report..

The Terminator meets the Matrix. It seemed Patterson was appealing to a young visual oriented sci-fi crowd with loads of special effects and gizmos. I was intrigued that the author would write something so different from his usual genre, and might have been a good story had it been better plotted out. I found the writing really bad, very juvenile.

Took some time getting into it. Lots of action, but few gaps here and there.

A sci-fic on the struggle between the elites (0.1 percenters of the future?) and the rest of the humans. Plot is good but only because I am not a avid sci-fic reader. (Obviously the work of the ghost writer though a departure of Patterson's normal genre of crime and mayhem.)

Normally like Patterson, but this was a terrible book.

Could not get interested in this book because the futuristic nature of the story is just not my thing. The only Patterson book that I haven't loved.

Loyal Patterson fan. This one took me some time to get into, but i find it quite interesting, and very creative.

Wham!—no slow reveal, no fade-in. There are just bodies everywhere. Human beings are slumped in car seats, collapsed on sidewalks, lying on the floor in front of the counter at a once popular fast-food restaurant called McDonald's.
