Joe Stanton is in agony. Out of his mind over the death of his young daughter. Unable to contain his grief, Joe loses control in public, screaming his daughter’s name and causing a huge scene at a hotel on San Juan Island in Washington State. Thing is, Joe Stanton doesn’t have a daughter. Never did. And when the authorities arrive they blame the 28-year-old’s outburst on drugs. What they don’t yet know is that others up and down the Pacific coast—from the Bering Sea to the Puget Sound—are suffering identical, always fatal mental breakdowns. With the help of his girlfriend, Joe struggles to unravel the meaning of the hallucination destroying his mind. As the couple begins to perceive its significance—and Joe’s role in a looming global calamity—they must also outwit a billionaire weapons contractor bent on exploiting Joe’s newfound understanding of the cosmos, and outlast the time bomb ticking in Joe’s brain. Is he losing his mind–or his world?
This book was really creepy! I mean, Joe wakes up, screaming about a daughter that he doesn't have, which ignites a whole conspiracy that well, takes up the whole book! And yeah, it was pretty chilling, because this is what life could be like in 8 years. So yeah, chilling, scary, creepy!
Then there's the fact that these "breakdowns" about a daughter, everybody else has died eventually. Joe hasn't yet, so there's an opportunity there for people who are unscrupulous. Which the bad guys are, of course!s is a bit of a future
I really enjoyed the science, and how all that works, and the sci fi stuff, because that is what this book is, and the technological advances in this book were really cool, and I hope some of them will eventually come to pass, because yeah, I would like some of them!
But this was also a thriller, too, because yeah, there were some really creepy things that happened in this book, as well as what's happening to Joe, and how he has things to figure out, like what's happening to him, how to stop it, and how to stay alive, and ahead of the bad guys!
I really enjoyed this book, it was really good!
