    The United States is near total collapse. But 87% of the population doesn't care: they're addicted to flashback, a drug that allows its users to re-experience the best moments of their lives. After ex-detective Nick Bottom's wife died in a car accident, he went under the flash to be with her; he's lost his job, his teenage son, and his livelihood as a result. Nick may be a lost soul, but he's still a good cop, so he is hired to investigate the murder of a top governmental advisor's son.

    Jeffrey says: "Outstanding, haunting work from a master of sci fi"
    "Prejudice and right wing bias overwhelms the story"

    Story

    Overtly displayed Anti-Japanese and Arab xenophobia make this book one I just can't get through, which is a shame, since it otherwise seems to be developing into something interesting. The performance is fine, though the protagonist voice is a bit strange - rather whiny it seems to me. Switching narrators bugs me a bit - I'm usually ok if a man reads the men and a woman the women - but I see no need for multiple male narrators.
