“This is a surprisingly prescient, futuristic thriller from the former newspaper mogul.”
– Daily Mirror

“Eddy Shah has always been fascinated by innovation and the possibilities of the future, and here puts his thoughts in thrilling and thought-provoking form.”
– Booktopia

“Long time no hear since the former newspaper tycoon penned brilliant thrillers. This time Shah tells a chilling tale about the power of the internet and those who would seek to harness it under the guise of acting for the public good.”
– Peterborough Evening Telegraph. – Alex Gordon

“Thrilling and racy stuff.”
– Sky Book Show – Mariella Frostrup

“In a world where the thrillers adaptability is changing on a rather daily basis what once would seem as a far fetched thriller can be out of date within mere months as the technology improves in leaps and bounds. Here Eddy Shah blends two genres into one, the thriller world collides and amalgamates with clear-sighted Science Fiction in a no holds barred fast paced action adventure. For make no mistake, that is exactly what this book does as it melds a new subgenre firmly into the readers imagination, demonstrating that there’s no limits to what can be achieved. It’s well written with snappy characters whilst the fast pace alongside exceptional action sequences don’t allow the reader chance to pause for breath.

Although some of it falls within the realm of science fiction, that part of the tale doesn’t detract from the sheer enjoyment of the reader making this fair game for exclusive readers of the thriller genre as was proven when my grandfather loved the book even though he isn’t that techno savvy.

This book can bridge generations and present an adventure to many a reader as opposed to a select few its one that definitely deserves a chance to be enjoyed by many. Do yourself a favour and pursue this tale with a vengeance as I can assure you that you won’t be disappointed.”

“We live in a reality where online or digital technology is all- pervasive – on our TVs, on our phones, at work, at home – and we are surrounded constantly by images, video, audio and text and endless opportunities to buy goods or pay for services or ‘experience’things that we didn’t know we wanted. Eddy Shah knows this, and his media experience tells.

What he has done is very cleverly built two worlds, the real world and the Second World, where the right labels are just as important as ever and owning the rights to those labels can mean riches beyond the dreams of avarice. Can you imagine paying more for a virtual designer-label watch than you would for a real one because you want to be seen to be as ‘virtually rich’ as you are in reality? Playing games becomes a real experience where teams can wander through fully realised worlds, fighting dragons with swords to complete immense quests – till next week – and for those who fancy a fully immersive romantic assignation with Marilyn Monroe or Ava Gardner or Humphrey Bogart, you can, as long as you can pay, and the rights to those likenesses and personalities are owned by major corporations who exploit them as ‘working avatars’.”
