Publisher's Summary

Fans of William Gibson, Jonathan Letham, and Richard K. Morgan will enjoy Strictly Analog by Richard Levesque.
What's a private detective to do in a future where nothing is private? That's Ted Lomax's problem. In the new California, a corporation runs the government, electric cars have drive tones, and a new technology keeps everyone constantly connected to the Internet. Almost everyone.
Disabled in California's war for independence, Ted is locked out of the new tech. Living on the fringes of society for years, he's found a way to turn his disability into cash: finding clients who need their info kept off the grid.
But when his daughter is accused of murdering her boyfriend - an agent in California's Secret Police - Ted has to dig himself out of the hole he's been in. To save his daughter, he ventures into a shadow world of underground hackers, high-end programmers, and renegade gear-heads, all of whom seem to have a stake in California's future.
It soon becomes clear it's about more than one dead agent. Solving the case might save his daughter. And it might get him killed. And it just might open the door to secrets surrounding the attack that almost killed him eighteen years before.
One thing's certain, though. Ted Lomax will never be the same.

Just like THE GIRL AT THE END OF THE WORLD, this book enjoyed a push from Audible, that some much better books did not get. It premiered at the top of several lists and has been included in every sale available. The first three pages of reviews with the exception of one, praise the book for it's smarts and excitement. Once the readers got a hold of hit, it's rating sunk to 3.9, which is not good. The America presented does seem unique, but the story and lack of character development is boring. Some reviewers would lead you to think Noir means boring. My first Noir books, were James M. Cain, and those books are entertaining and exciting. This is the second Levesque book I have had to quit, there will not be a third.

Good read

I loved the author's take on our digital future and the main character's analog style. I enjoyed the Steven Jay Cohen's performance even more the longer the book went.
