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 Christian Verger's worries. His fiancee 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.

It’s pretty good, and strange and bizarre but really well thought out. I loved how a fashion show and murder are all connected within a futuristic setting that is scarily looking likely. Not sure I liked any of the... More

Tick tick boom.
This book had me at so many things, the explosive start figuratively and literally. The death prediction from Alexa, which bizarrely when I asked my Alexa she said she can’t see in to the future and... More
