Product description

Review

..".a thrilling novel that lays bare the imminent future of warfare."--Publishers Weekly starred review

"The Last Good Man is a fantastic, lightning-fast thriller that hits all the right notes: an engaging story set in an all-too-plausible future, advanced technology, plenty of action, and fantastic, well-rounded characters."--The Verge

From Hugo and Nebula award-winner Greg Bear: "A new novel by Linda Nagata is always an event. The Last Good Man pulls us into next month's headlines with a conviction and energy that makes for an extraordinary tale."

From Hugo and Nebula award-winner Vonda N. McIntyre: "The Last Good Man is a compelling and subversive novel, told by unique characters, especially True Brighton: sympathetic, prickly, determined, all too human. Linda Nagata has impressive insights into technological advances and their potential effects.... It was a privilege to read TLGM before its publication."

From Steven Gould, author of Jumper "I asked to see an advanced copy of The Last Good Man with the caveat that I was very busy and might not get to it. I was just going to glance at the first few pages but looked up to find myself halfway through the book in the wee hours of the morning. Only an early morning appointment kept me from reading on but I finished it the following evening.

"Welcome to the future of war. Soldiers on the ground depend more on their augmented reality visors, net connections, and hosts of robotic allies, than their rifles, but as long as they tread in harm's way, certain things do not change, including collateral damage, ethical challenges, and the grief of a mother, a warrior herself, when her son dies in action.

"Set where war's bleeding edge of technology slams into people's lives, this is a very human story, brilliantly told."
