This was a very interesting read. A near future tech murder mystery set in Scotland. There are very prominant characters that are homosexual and a atheistic undertone to the book. Fine with me, but some might not like. If you know what the term "Rule 34" actually means the contents and direction of the book won't suprise. To those that don't the main investigater is originally posted to investigate illegal internet sex sites and spammers. The sexual content and direction start from there. The subject matter is pretty gritty and dark that escalates as the book moves forward. I don't want to spoil anything so I'll leave it at that.

I really enjoyed this read and I found the dark take by the author on what the world evolves into by the 2020's is intriguing. I recommend this to anyone that enjoys tech stuff and is not easily offended. That's me to a tee.
