Exposure: A Virals Novel by Kathy Reichs
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Ending of the case could have been better, "Deus Ex Machina" comes to mind, but at least no vigilante self-justice, so it could also have been worse.
A few nice twists, complicated evolution of a beginning romance. No Sex. And no love-triangle.
Very believe-and-likeable characters. POV changes a few times, interesting choice.
Did not see the twist with the psycho coming, very well done.
Highly recommended, but I guess you should read the other novels in the series.
Reading this one now, makes a lot of other books in this genre (YA) pale in comparison, most I sampled did not reach this level of suspense, good characters, places and above all, very well done science. While not yet achieved, it is entirely plausible and based on fact. Other things are state-of-the-art techniques, I could not detect mistakes, and only missed some of the use of (iPhone-) Apps which was covered in the previous books - ok, they used the phones / computers for chat and the previously used Apps where still used, but nothing new (well, tumblr is mentioned). Encryption plays a role, nice.
All in all, the computer stuff is very well done, integrated and without errors but also not too complicated non-tech-people.
