About The Book
What if today was your last day…A bomb has exploded during a fashion show, killing a beautiful model on the catwalk. The murderer. is still at large… and he may strike again. Yet this is the least of Police Commissioner ChristianVerger’s worries. His fiancée Viola has left him. He has to keep his tumultuous past a secret. To make things worse, his voice assistant Alexa is 99.74% sure he will die tomorrow.
Moving from snowy 1980s Montana to chic 1990s Manhattan to a drone-filled 2030s Britain, FUTURE PERFECT is an electrifying race to solve a murder before it’s too late. Yet it is also a love story, a riveting portrait of a couple torn apart by secrets, grief and guilt. A twisted tale of how the past can haunt a person’s future and be used to predict if he will die… or kill.
I’ll admit that I’ve been waiting for this book since I read Yesterday, also from Felicia Yap, and this book hasn’t disappointed me at all! Intriguing, complex and futuristic, it makes you wonder if the technology that we all depend so much is really so good.
Everything will start when a bomb explodes at a fashion show, the police are scared that this will not be the only terrorist attack on the artist of the show by a famous fashion designer, Alexander King, who also has a weird obsession with her dead muse, Maya. Yes, this seems a normal thriller plot, but this is not the interesting part of it but the characters involved in the plot and more explicitly, all the technology that surrounds the story.
Because, when one of the main characters, Police Commissioner Christian Verger, receives the daily update of the most famous application (I-Predict) that there’s a 99.74% possibility of dying, all his actions and motivations will be to change this percentage. This makes you wonder if this is what really triggers the high percentage and if he will be able to change it.
On the other side, Viola, Christian’s fiancée is working also in a super secret technology to discover killers, the program is not yet finished but as a test she will enter the details of the bombing and, can you guess who is the main suspect? There are some drops from the past, to make the story more complex, understandable and dark but they need to be there to explain the full story.
I loved this read, impossible to put down or stop thinking about it.
