A delightful, easy, and breathtakingly fast read!

I'm not generally a fan of sci-fi, futuristic or what-if alternate-reality stories. But having read some of the author's newspaper columns and met her on occasion, I was intrigued.

To my delight, this story drew me in from page 1 and never let go. Just when you think you've got it all figured out, she throws in a twist. You're never really sure where it's going.

I confess to having a preference for Al and Rayna's overlapping story lines than the sub
I like the way the story is told, the book definitely gets you! I would describe it as "elegant", compared to other books out there. It just seems good writing. The story is captivating and complex, and the plot as well as the writing style keeps me connected to the story.
While technical details (it is SF after all) make the story interesting, the investigative skills of Al brings back the fun of old investigation movies. It is a very good mix.
If in doubt, at least try, you won't regret it!

I'd hoped that, written by a journalist, this would've grabbed me. Unfortunately although it was an interesting idea I came away without really feeling much for the people.
