Now, if you got infected with a nanoplague that killed everyone you’d came in contact with, but left you alive, you’d do the obvious thing and lock yourself up somewhere nice and private, and away from other people, wouldn’t you? You might, but you’re not Avery Cates. He wants to find whoever did this to him, and then he wants to kill them. And so, if you thought the body count was high in The Electric Church, it gets a whole lot higher in The Digital Plague. Much higher, since everywhere Avery goes, he takes the plague with him… and millions will die an unpleasant death. And the world that was teetering on the edge in The Electric Church simply can’t take that kind of punishment.

You need to be aware that this is very much a sequel, although it is complete in itself, and that these books need to be read in the correct order. And of course, I’ll slap the metaphorical R18 (language and violence) label on this one too. That said, it’s an action thriller, it’s noir, and if that’s your martini… it’s nicely shaken, and a bit stirred as well.
