The setting of the book is based in the future sixty years from the publishing of this book. Most of the characters work in the detective bureau in Boston PD, with other characters outside of the division sprinkled in to provide the variety of life necessary to keep things interesting as needed. Given the storyline is in the future, naturally there are going to be elements of possible future tech involved in the equation.
A good mystery, whodunit, detective novel with glimmers of science fiction wrapped around by a causational flow of energy to help keep the story moving from start to finish.
With that being said, the involved cast of characters do what they can to solve the ongoing developments of the case(s) as they continue to deal with their own personal struggles, some of which are unexpected. This was done to keep things in perspective with the hope that the characters would appear more multidimensional than flat, like the words streaming across the page in lackluster fashion.
Okay, I think I'm rambling… I'm going to stop here before I hurt myself. Oh yeah, there may be a few swear words time and again in the book. Does that count as offensive, even if it isn't every other word? Because isn't written to be offense, but it is written indicative to cop humor and the environment they delve into… I guess I'll mark it that it contains adult content because of that, just in case the occasional swear word fits the criteria.
Book One of The Perpetual Manifested States of Being series.
Read the book, I promise you won't be disappointed.
