No one goes out anymore. Society is sheltered indoors. The economy is in ruins. People spend their lives addicted to a breakthrough virtual reality technology, desperate for escapism in a troubled world. The Nirvana Effect has taken over. Aaron and Clarissa are members of a subculture of realists who resist the lure of a fake utopia. They watch in horror as the technology spreads across the country with willing participants who easily forgo their freedoms for false pleasures. When the young couple discovers a plot to enforce compliance for mind control, the battle for free will begins. What started as a playful diversion turns deadly. The future of the human race is at stake. AUTHOR: Brian Pinkerton is a USA Today bestselling author of novels and short stories in the thriller, horror, science fiction and mystery genres. His books include Abducted, Vengeance, Anatomy of Evil, Killer's Diary, Rough Cut, Bender, and How I Started the Apocalypse.
