#3: Lock In (John Scalzi)

I really enjoyed this — a lightweight SF detective novel. SF detective stories are difficult, because the technology compromises the reader’s ability to figure things out; Lock In gets around that by being more of a light action-movie of a book, and gamely explaining everything it needs to to get you to understand the clockwork of the plots and plans.

I bought the book when it came out, more because I was thrilled to find an indie bookstore had opened up off of Fountain Square than because I wanted a dead-tree version of the book — I was planning on getting it for the Kindle. Now I’m glad I got it, though
