About the author:

katy My main loves are writing, painting and singing. I began work as a PA but to my joy was spotted by an agent in London and had an exciting career as a singer, meeting and singing with some wonderful people. Singing meant a lot of travelling both in the UK and abroad. At one time, I toured Germany and Turkey singing for the American troops, which was a fantastic experience. But then, my husband and I wanted a family, so I said good-bye to the singing career, although I did the occasional gig. Having children is such a precious time, and I would say to anyone, treasure it, it goes so quickly and before you know it, you’re waving them off to Uni or pursuing their own dreams and their own homes. I have always had a deep interest in psychology for various reasons, and especially the area of neurosis arising from abuse. Later, I was to study how we could use our body, mind and spirit to relieve pain and overcome some life-threatening diseases. One important thing here is, I always told my patients to continue with medical treatment along with the complementary and spiritual methods, for I believe medical research and medication is also a gift from God, Spirit or the Universe, as each of us wishes to name it. I have loved writing from a child and during the years of study, research and treating some wonderful people, whom I called my friends, I would write at night, mainly short stories, and reams of poetry. I wanted to learn how to write self-help books for my clients, so I took creative writing courses at university, which led to writing a novel. So self-help novels turned to fiction but even so, I hope the novels help the reader through their own challenges, as the characters experience love, loss, passion, jealousy, illness, joy and conflict, even the threat of death.

====================
I'm honestly not sure what to say about this book. For some reason, it just didn't click with me and no matter how hard I try, I can't quite figure out why. The writing was good, the characters were well flushed out and the story moved at a good pace. Nope. I still can't put my finger on what it was that didn't work for me. I'm pretty sure this is the vaguest, most useless review I've ever written, but bear with me and hopefully we'll get through it together.

As I said, the characters are well flushed out. As a cyborg, Ben really seems more human than machine but that's really the point behind this whole book. I'm not going to spoil it for you, just say that you'll see if you read it. Lucy is an interesting character and her love for her pets made me smile more than once. Together, well that's one interesting combination...

The story starts a bit slow but quickly picks up pace. I did find that had a tough time keeping track of the various victims and which one was which. I did like the parts where they interacted with one another and I felt like that side of things was missing towards the end of the book. It's almost as if their perspective was forgotten and now that I think about it, we never did find out what happened to all of them. I also would have liked to have seen more of the viewpoint of the bad guys. I know that the whole point was for the police to figure out who was behind these crimes, but the work that the bad guys were doing was really interesting and you only get glimpses of it at the end.

All in all, I'm going to say this is a pretty good read for anyone interested in police drama, sci-fi and futuristic books with a bit of romance thrown in.
