A Digital Plague Top Ten from Jeff Somers

Orbit recently published Jeff Somers' second action-packed near-future novel, The Digital Plague, a follow-up to his first novel, The Electric Church. "A strong techno-thriller," (PW) Digital Plague continues the adventures of Avery Cates, killer-for-hire. As the press release reads, "He's probably the richest criminal in New York City. But right now, Avery Cates is pissed. Because everyone around him has just started to die - in a particularly gruesome way. With every moment bringing the human race closer to extinction, Cates finds himself in the role of both executioner and savior of the entire world." The novel was also recently featured on io9, with Annalee Newitz writing, "If you like nano-noir (and who doesn't?), you won't want to miss [it]."

What a depressing, illuminating, and unfortunately plausible glimpse into our collective future.

Let's hope this spooky novel remains merely fiction!
