Version Control: A Novel - Dexter Palmer

Terence and Spivey's appearances in this novel--their verbal antics--are an extra thrill for me, because it takes me right back to all the fun I knew I was going to have when Monahan and Monroe would suddenly show up in one of Ed McBain's 87th Precinct novels. and of course I LOVE that Alicia, strong, assertive, is a big Wonder Woman fan--wild coincidence, neat when that sort of thing just happens! meanwhile--I'm now officially soothed by the inner knowledge that this book will be extremely fascinating, and a joy to read, no matter slow the main plot unfolds. supremely character-driven, with a slow-burn eerie feel...and that's just fine with me.
