'An engrossing sci-fi debut. Fans of virtual reality-set sci-fi will find this a solidly entertaining offering." - Publisher's Weekly
In near-future London, Theo Wilson must navigate the darkest corners of a virtual universe to rescue his kidnapped mother. A brilliant thrill-ride of a novel for fans of Ready Player One, Stranger Things and One Word Kill.
Life in the near future's NOT ALL BAD. We've reversed global warming, and fixed the collapsing bee population. We even created SPACE, a virtual-sensory universe where average guys like Theo Wilson can do almost anything they desire.
But ALMOST ANYTHING isn't enough for some. Every day, normal people are being taken, their emotions harvested - and lives traded - to create death-defying thrills for the rich and twisted.
NOW THEO'S MOTHER HAS DISAPPEARED. And as he follows her breadcrumb trail of clues, he'll come up against the most dangerous SPACE has to offer: vPolice, AI Bots and anarchists - as well as a criminal empire that will KILL TO STOP HIM finding her . . .
If you loved Ready Player One, Stranger Things and One Word Kill, you'll be blown away by CTRL+S.
