Very good story, until the end. The notion of people sharing memories is a rich topic and the author explores many aspects of it. He broke with his usual style here and tried to make it current and fast moving. I think he partly succeeded. It's fast moving and suspenseful, but a little to current. The "war on terror" theme has been beat to death.

One of the things this author does best is research his subject and limit the sci-fi to plausible (almost) scenarios. He does that well through most of the book, except the end. The topic of quantum linking is pretty difficult to fathom so it's hard to say what's plausible and not, but I just can't buy the end. It was a great journey getting there though, and if his goal is to get a TV series, he might just make it.
