Summary
In the near future a virus sweeps through the world population. For a small percentage the result of the disease is a condition known as lock in. They are fully awake and aware, but unable to move their bodies. With 1.7 million Americans affected, new medical technologies emerge, including systems that allow the locked in to use the bodies of the healthy. Things get really tricky when an Integrator is found at the scene of a murder.
Critique
An engrossing and thought-provoking science fiction read. Winner of the 2015 Alex Award, this title will appeal to adults and teens alike. This book offers a disturbing look at humanity, medical ethics, political corruption, and technology. And there are robots.
