Science fiction blends with a chilling murder mystery in "a futuristic police procedural that echoes themes by Philip K. Dick and Charles Stross" (Booklist). It's 2050, and someone has executed one of Los Angeles's countless immigrants. Not that anyone seems to care. Even case officer Detective Terri Pastuzka isn't planning to waste much of her time on it—until an unexpected development reveals there's far more to this corpse than meets the eye. And in a city full of augmented technology, the eye can see pretty much everything, everywhere. But not everything you see can be believed. Soon, what started as a single homicide turns into a string of unsolved murders leading Terri down a rabbit hole of Los Angeles's conflicting realities—augmented and virtual—and into the path of a murderer who knows that death is the absolute reality. Exploring the dangers of technology and the thin line between the real world and the one we see on our screens, Exploded View is "a police procedural that says as much about the present day as it does about the culture of the near-future. With an ending that will leave you reeling, Exploded View forces you to question everything you think you know about reality" (Richard Cox, author of The Boys of Summer).
