This is as well written as Lock In, but is a sequel so some of the shiny newness has rubbed off. That means it was really good, a wonderful murder mystery in the semi-near future. It's also narrated by Wil Wheaton (Wesley Crusher from STNG) who really does a good job. I don't think reading these books in order is a must, but I'd suggest it.

Would a person who had Hayden's from such an early age even have a sex? Several times we're told that every Hayden victim has their brain reordered by the disease, so it's possible - seems likely - that Chris has no sex at all. It's one of the things that makes us human & connects us in a variety of ways to other people, yet Chris seems like a normally functioning person who just has none. Not sure I buy that, but it's a good thought experiment.
