Lucky Ghost: The Martingale Cycle (Martingale Cycle 2)
Lucky Ghost is a fast-paced and tightly plotted techno-thriller set in the near future. It follows on from the superb Sockpuppet and while it works as a stand alone I'd highly recommend reading both. A few years have elapsed since the final events of the previous novel and the latest craze is an immersive augmented reality game called The Strange where players earn and trade in emotions. Needless to say, once something attains a value and becomes currency, whether in the real world or a virtual one (or a hybrid of the two), corruption and criminality soon follows. Add an unruly gang of hacktivists and an investigative journalist intent on following the money and you have another of Matthew Blakstad's trademark intelligent, exciting and all-too-believable page-turners. He truly is the king of geeklit.
