In 2082, androids are an essential part of daily life. Some are helpful, some would make better toasters, and some are so human-like they’re creepy. Back in Atlanta, Detective Cooper’s latest client has him searching for her boyfriend who she thinks was replaced by a simulation, an illegal clone android. The guy also happens to be a popular new congressman.

After the pleasant surprise that was the first novel in this series, Pop Travel, I was really looking forward to this book. However, as the story seemed quite finished with the first book, I was wondering what was going to happen in this novel.

Fast forward two years, and meet all the characters from the first book again. This felt a little bit odd at times, because except for some awkwardness between Cooper and Geri, there didn't seem t

Just finished reading “Simulation: A Pop Travel Novel” by Tara Tyler. I won a signed copy of this book on Goodreads.com, and I would like to say thank you Tara. The first book “Pop Travel” was fun and exciting, and this one was even more fun and even more action packed. A very creative and imaginative science fiction/thriller detective/agent romp. We have time travel, androids, robot and simulations and they are all battling each other. Who are the humans and who are the simulators? You do have ...more

I read the first Pop Travel book a long time ago. Despite that, I've never forgotten that endearingly bumbling character, Cooper. However, this time he doesn't seem to bumble quite as much as I recalled from the first book. In fact, the entire cast is tighter, stronger, and more appealing. The villain was someone I could truly despise and somewhat empathize with at the same time. I loved that very human aspect. Geri seemed more the star of this book, and rightly so. Her hard wit and sarcasm are ...more

FBI Agent Geri Harper is saddled with a new agent who's cute and peppy and totally annoys her. They're given what seems to be a mundane case about DNA sequencing gone wrong, but it leads them to something much larger. It also has Geri crossing paths with her ex, Detective Cooper. Seems their cases might actually be linked. When they uncover possible evidence that a new congressman might be a simulation (an android replica of someone), things turn from dangerous to deadly.

A fantastic second book

The second installment in Tyler's techo-thriller detective series. I liked the first book a lot (even though the idea of pop travel still terrifies me...) and thought the characters were a lot of fun to hang out with, so I was excited to have the opportunity to go on another adventure with them. I particularly liked Geri in this book, and I could totally relate to her initial interactions with Aimee. I love when Hasan shows up in a scene (he cracks me up), and I'm honestly worried about what wil ...more

This is the 2nd book in this series. FBI Agent Geri Harper has a new peppy new recruit. Nerves frazzled by the newby they are given a case about DNA sequencing gone wrong, but nothing to far out there for them. It gets more complicated though and has Geri crossing paths with Detective J. L. Cooper. He was the lead character in the first book in the series, Pop Travel. The dynamics of their relationship is an enjoyable read, despite the fact they are Ex's. Fun. adventure and intrigue abound. I he ...more

(I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review).

(This review may contain spoilers).

While I haven't read the first book in this series, I still found this book to be quite easy to read and follow. There was a bit of information dumping, but on the whole, I found the plot to be interesting and engaging. And there were some really good moments of banter between a lot of the characters.

While I did think there were some instances where the romance didn't exactly fit...and scenes where

I read the first book in this series (Pop Travel), enjoyed it and looked forward to diving into this one. And although the first book did make it easy to know where each character was coming from, SIMULATION can be read as a stand-alone.

This story starts two years after Cooper uncovers the truth behind the disappearances due to Pop Travel. Cooper has broken relations with Geri, and although I found this a little disheartening, the change in their relationship added a nice spring board for a new

Excellent sci-fi thriller!

The year is 2082 and our favorites private detective and FBI Agent are back! Cooper and Geri are brought together once again, thanks to their line of work, for another wild ride. Androids are pretty common in this world, and it's pretty cool if you want dependable help. It also really is amazing advancement for technology . . . until SIMULATIONS become a reality. What are these? Well . . . cloned androids who can be exact replicas of real life people. And they're not l

Would you really want life eternal? Just as when asked would I want to go to heaven, I think, hmm –might it not get boring after a while? Once you have done everything and been everywhere, what is there left to do? ‘Course if you are a megalomaniac you can always find some mischief – or can you?
This is really a story about cloning brains and robots and as I have been watching ‘Humans’ on TV, I can see the appeal of all the nice bodies you could have – imagine if you could sculpt away all your ba

This book was wonderfully written. The characters had wonderful personalities and the romance didn't seem awkward and forced. The plot was extremely interesting and it was obvious that a lot of thought and detail was put into the scientific and setting research. Overall, a great read!
