9780966614923: State of Mind

Your thoughts are not your own...
In the not too distant future, freedom is a just a word that you willingly trade for a dozen donuts, based on the dubious promise that you can eat what you want and never gain weight. You can also take drugs will no ill effects or call a friend while surfing the web without a phone or computer. All this and more will be yours following the simple installation of a P-Chip in your brain.
After botching the arrest of the governor's son in Los Angeles, Commander Jake Travissi is banned from law enforcement. The workaholic homicide cop spirals into depression... until he is given a rare second chance. The price? Volunteer for chip implantation and join Homeland Security's experimental Enhanced Unit.
The grisly assassination of a prominent Nobel Laureate brings the newly formed Unit on the scene to investigate. But as the body count rises, Jake begins to realize that his actions, and even his thoughts, are not his own. Fighting to regain control of his own State of Mind, Jake finds himself embroiled in a global conspiracy to enslave the human race.

About the Author:

Sven Michael Davison has worked as a staff screenwriter, written movie trailers for Paramount Pictures, and speeches for film directors and producers. He was the head of Twentieth Century Fox's World Wide Home Entertainment Content and Production Department for ten years. When he is not writing he consults for entertainment technology companies. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife and son. This is his second novel.

Review:

"A thoughtfully composed piece of cyberpunk that will please readers of both science fiction and noir." - Kirkus Reviews

"Davison's Los Angeles is puply-vibrant, an unforgettable wasteland. State of Mind is the world of the near future, the horrible synthesis of human desire and the technology to make it a reality." - ForeWord Reviews

"An intelligent, thought provoking, cinematic post-cyberpunk thriller and a great read." - Antony Jones sfbook.com

State of Mind is an action-filled, engrossing journey across the tortuous emotional landscape of mind control, where nothing is quite what it seems for everyone involved. A must-read for Pin Heads and God Heads alike and for the casual observers. ---- Leonid Korogodski, author of Pink Noise

State of Mind is an action-packed cyber-thriller that transports us to a futuristic dystopia where the most dangerous battlefield is the human mind. Fans of Philip K. Dick and William Gibson will find much to enjoy -- and fear -- in the dark and mysterious world Sven Davison has so effectively created." ---- Charles de Lauzirika, director of Crave and Dangerous Days: Making Blade Runner

A great read! A classic near-future techno-thriller, with layers of intrigue, interesting twists and just a dash of pulp mixed in for good measure. Sven Davison's State of Mind is an engrossing journey through a well-considered and completely plausible world. --- Bill Hunt, Editor The Digital Bits.com
