The powerful artificial intelligence designated k52 has a plan to take over the world.

If it were to create an artificial reality based on our own universe it could theoretically gain enough data to be able to alter reality itself, turning k52 into the ultimate arbiter of mankind’s fate.

I ended last year, and started this one, by discovering a great new writer of science fiction. In Reality 36 , Guy Haley combines smartass private investigators with artificial intelligence, creating a truly entertaining posthuman thriller. There was just one problem.

Sometimes I curse my need to finish everything I start. The thing about this book is that, like its predecessor, I feel like I should like it more than I do.

This one in particular felt like to separate and tonally unrelated books jammed up together, alternating between one and the other.

Shame really because the first in the series featuring this pair worked very well and the plot nicely continues to a good finish here. It just needed a good editor to take out the blue pencil and cut out all the silliness.
