#71 - "The Electric Church" by Jeff Somers

In the near future, the only thing growing faster than the criminal population is the Electric Church, a new religion founded by a mysterious man named Dennis Squalor. The Church preaches that life is too brief to contemplate the mysteries of the universe: eternity is required. In order to achieve this, the converted become Monks -- cyborgs with human brains, enhanced robotic bodies, and virtually unlimited life spans.
Enter Avery Cates, a dangerous criminal known as the best killer-for-hire around. The authorities have a special mission in mind for Cates: assassinate Dennis Squalor. But for Cates, the assignment will be the most dangerous job he's ever undertaken -- and it may well be his last.

My thoughts on the book:
I really enjoyed it! It was really fast-paced sci-fi with lots of action & I liked the story, too! I'll definitely continue reading the series!

My rating: 4/5

  1. Sounds like a delicious romance. Although not my kind of book.
