Lock In (Lock In, #1)



Lock In (Lock In, #1) Not too long from today, a new, highly contagious virus makes its way across the globe Most who get sick experience nothing worse than flu, fever and headaches But for the unlucky one percent and nearly five million souls in the United States alone the disease causes Lock In Victims fully awake and aware, but unable to move or respond to stimulus The disease affects young, old, rich, poor, people of every color and creed The world changes to meet the challenge.A quarter of a century later, in a world shaped by what s now known as Haden s syndrome, rookie FBI agent Chris Shane is paired with veteran agent Leslie Vann The two of them are assigned what appears to be a Haden related murder at the Watergate Hotel, with a suspect who is an integrator someone who can let the locked in borrow their bodies for a time If the Integrator was carrying a Haden client, then naming the suspect for the murder becomes that much complicated.But complicated doesn t begin to describe it As Shane and Vann began to unravel the threads of the murder, it becomes clear that the real mystery and the real crime is bigger than anyone could have imagined The world of the locked in is changing, and with the change comes opportunities that the ambitious will seize at any cost The investigation that began as a murder case takes Shane and Vann from the halls of corporate power to the virtual spaces of the locked in, and to the very heart of an emerging, surprising new human culture It s nothing you could have expected.

    I ve read pretty much everything John Scalzi has written at this point, so when I pick up one of his books, I don t expect anything in particular I just know he s going to take me somewhere, and I trust that he s going to make the ride a pleasant one Even so, I was a little surprised by this book In some ways it s sci fi but not rocketships and lasers sci fi In other ways it s a mystery, but not the Victorian style Sherlock sort of thing It s also kind of a police procedural Maybe a bit of I ve read pretty much everything John Scalzi has written at this point, so when I pick up one of his books, I don t expect anything in particular I just know...

    If you ever want a morbid exercise to kill some time, imagine living through this full consciousness, full comprehension and the complete inability to control your body, a physical paralysis that does not affect your mind, a complete and total helplessness that does not even provide you with a merciful unawareness but instead leaves you just lying there, conscious but immobile and unable to communicate.This is wha...
