Killer in the Retroscape: A Near-Future Mystery
by Bruce M. Perrin
“A compelling mystery set in a superbly-constructed future world.” – A Wishing Shelf Book Review

It’s not an evil artificial intelligence intent on taking over the world. It’s not his friend’s machine-intelligence wife, Julia, even if she can’t even remember his final days.
And when his retroscape is finished, Doug finds the killer … in one of the most unlikely of places.
