New in Sci-Fi: John Scalzi’s Lock In

Lock In ScalziIn the near-future, a virus rocks the world, causing one percent of the population to become “locked in,” awake and aware but unable to move.  Twenty-five years later, rookie FBI agent Chris Shane, using a robotic body, or “threep,” investigates a murder at the Watergate Hotel which may or may not involve another of the “locked in” and leads across the country and into the virtual world.

Scalzi takes an imaginative sci-fi premise and explores how society might react. His trademark humor and clever dialog make this police procedural/political thriller sparkle.

(Also, check out John Scalzi on Twitter for a laugh or three.)
