Depends on the Strength of the Yes

Lex Page is a reporter in the not-too-distant future who has stumbled onto the story of a lifetime, and a crazy old man who insists that all conspiracy theories are true. It's obviously nonsense.

Being followed is probably just coincidence.

This is a very interesting book. It takes a setting that is a true cyberpunk for the 21st century, overexaggerated government interference and throwaway culture in a running social commentary, and a touch of noir nihilism and combines it with a plot like a cheesy 90s action movie and a cast that includes reincarnated social icons of the 19th and mid-20th centuries. You can't take this book seriously, just enjoy the ride on the fun romp that it is. Very entertaining read.

The action in the novel was fast paced and eac

Lex Page is a self-employed reporter who lives out of cheap hotel rooms, and who i
