Far be it from author Matt Doyle to color within the lines of genre definitions! ADDICT is a futuristic tale of murder and mayhem in an age of high technology and where there is advancement and success, there is a dark side. That is the side that Private Investigator Cassie Tam works.

Set in the city of New Hopeland, virtual junkies, tech shifters, assassins and drug dealers run amok, often as the local PD turns the other way. Cassie has been hired to investigate the murder of a VR Junkie, because even though the police say it is an open and shut case of suicide, his sister believes otherwise. Cassie didn’t expect to find herself face to face with her ex-girlfriend, or to be attracted to her client, all while slamming headlong into old personal issues and a police department that is tell her to back off. Yep, all in a day’s work.

Dark and gritty with the heavy feel of old-fashioned PI sagas, Cassie’s life is anything but circa 1950 as science fiction, sexual diversity, and high tech addictions are front and center for this tough-on-the-outside PI with a tarnished heart of gold. As the case progresses, Cassie will wonder, who is in more danger, herself or her heart?

While the lesbian aspect is so lowkey, I wondered why it was inserted, I do think it helps define Cassie as the person she is. Lots of attitude, plenty of smarts and a nose to solve the unsolvable, Cassie Tam is a character to watch and this series is looking pretty good for some deep dark mysteries that are being swept under the proverbial rug!

I received a complimentary copy from Matt Doyle!
