ABOUT THIS BOOK
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 Christian Verger'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.
An immersive psychological thriller that will enchant you from the very first page, Felicia Yap has once again created a fresh and original novel that will blow your mind!
It is 2030 and technology has become even more advanced and we, as a society, have become even more dependent on it. From iPredict that can tell you with a high chance of certainty what is going to happen to you today, drones that deliver your every need in no time at all, to the self-driving cars that can deposit you to your destination without worrying about traffic, technology is key. But when there is an explosion at a high fashion show event it is good old-fashioned police work that will be needed to figure out the culprit - as the criminal software that will aid in capturing the guilty party is still under development. Enter Commissioner Christian Verger who is determined to apprehend the culprit before they can attack again. But he has his own problems too - like the demise of his relationship to his fiancée Viola and the secrets from the past that haunt his dreams. Viola has her secrets too but when they are all drawn into this investigation, it becomes clear that what happened all those years ago in the past, has come together now, and to save themselves and those that they love, they must figure out the connections ... quickly.
A warning to our over-reliance on technology for everything, FUTURE PERFECT is at the heart of it all a thriller. The characters are engaging and likeable, yet we are always aware that they are hiding something from us, which only left me more determined to dig up the truth. It has everything you need for a great novel in this genre - danger, murder, lies, subterfuge, secrets, and tragedy - but Felicia Yap has a magnificent talent for creating a great novel and taking it that one step further, making it sublime. I picked this up at 8pm to read a few chapters and I didn't come up for air until I was finished and it was well past my bedtime. It was worth it!
FUTURE PERFECT by Felicia Yap is everything you could want in a novel and more, and I cannot wait to read her third book!
