Dark, gritty, different.
Spademan is a garbageman-turned-hitman in a New York that’s fallen apart. Most people live in a “bed” where they are tapped into a virtual reality, Spademan slips into their homes and slits their throats while they’re out. Only when his next target is a young eighteen-year-old girl, the daughter of the corrupt evangelist running the city, something stops him short. And this is not a love story in case that’s where you thought this was going.
Underrated, I highly recommend people try this. The prose is engaging, it’s a fairly quick read, and never boring. The many twists come about with perfect timing, most of the time in disturbing realization. This isn’t like any other kind of technology-gone-wrong-end-of-America-as-it’s-known type of book.
