Killer in the Retroscape: A Near-Future Mystery
by Bruce M. Perrin
“A compelling mystery set in a superbly-constructed future world.” – A Wishing Shelf Book Review
When Doug Michaels finds his friend dead in 2068, he builds a mental landscape, a retroscape, to find the killer.
But as suspects appear, they disappear almost as quickly. It’s not the aftereffects of an illness sensationalized in the media as the “zombie pandemic”. It’s not an evil artificial intelligence intent on taking over the world. It’s not his friend’s machine-intelligence wife, Julia, even if she can’t even remember his final days.
And when his retroscape is finished, Doug finds the killer … in one of the most unlikely of places.
