The Last Iota by Robert Kroese
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I seem to be reading a lot of humor books capturing the essence of economics lately. It's almost as if economics is funny.
AND MAYBE IT IS. :)
The Last Iota certainly takes electronic currencies on a wild spin. It throws us in a wild cyberpunk future mixing clones, lawless zones in the heart of LA with high-tech military action and gives us a sociopathic genius as the other MC, the main one being a tactically brilliant hands-on guy who we follow and love to see clash with his partner.
So wait. Is this a great high-tech thriller or is it a comedy?
It's both, maybe neither. It's a noir mystery with overtones of Sherlock Holmes if Sherlock just wanted to see the world burn and he thought an Ex-Seal Team murderer might be a good choice to serve as his conscience. It's certainly funny as hell. Weird, huh? It works. Especially when you hunted a lost sheep in the heart of the city in the previous book and a worthless limited edition coin representing electronic currency in this one. :)
See the disconnect?
Oh yeah. It's pretty awesome.
