Our new book of the week, ‘Convergence’ by Michael Patrick Hicks, is one of those where its summary just doesn’t do justice to how good it is. It is truly an excellent Sci Fi novel and a worthy ‘Book of the Week’.
By: Michael Patrick Hicks
In an America now controlled by the Pacific Rim Coalition, Jonah Everitt does what he must to survive. He kills people and steals their memories for a gangster named Alice Xie.
Addicted to a narcotic made from the memories of the dead, Everitt merely exists – his relationship with his teenager daughter, Mesa, worsening every day. When that daughter goes missing, Everitt is forced into an uneasy alliance with Alice to find her.
Mesa’s abduction is wrapped up in the secrets of a brutal murder during the war’s early days, a murder that Alice Xie wants revenged. Jonah will have to sift through the memories of dead men that could destroy what little he has left.
In a city where peace is tenuous and loyalties are ever shifting, the past and the present are about to converge.
A cyberpunk thrillride through a future America under Chinese rule. The conflict between the humanity of the main character, Jonah, and the things he has had to do to survive in this harsh new world makes ‘Convergence’ an absolute pleasure to read.
