Publisher's Summary

Inspector Victoria Rhodes works long hours as one of the last clean cops on San Francisco's crumbling police force. When a double murder claims the life of a city prosecutor in the exclusive covenant community of Atlantis, Rhodes is assigned as liaison between the SFPD investigation and the investigation run by the private security force known as the ASM.
Public Prosecutor Katherine Radcliffe was the face of local politics, fighting to resurrect the fallen city of San Francisco by bridging the gap between the private wealth of Atlantis and the forgotten populace of the public sector. Found in the arms of her ex-sensual companion turned corporate psychologist lover, her death resonates with Rhodes and the people of San Francisco on a personal level.
With tensions building between the classes and evidence mounting, Rhodes finds herself delving into the past of the man at the top of the ASM corporate ladder, an inexplicable mercenary turned upper-class messiah, known as Atlas.
When she discovers that his past resembles her own remarkably, she can't help but force a confrontation that brings her face to face with a man she cannot understand, a suspect she knows she has to pursue, and a truth she knows she may not want to uncover.

Very cool story!

If you could sum up Atlas in three words, what would they be?

Interesting futuristic concept!

What other book might you compare Atlas to and why?

This totally had an I, ROBOT vibe to me...it is a similar concept, just not as extreme..at least not yet!

What does Christa Lewis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She is great to listen to, I was absorbed into this story very easily because of her.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I wanted to, but I had to work and sleep...lol

Any additional comments?

** I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review **

This is a fabulous story, it starts off a little sad...the main characters were basically cast off kids, who went through some very horrible things...especially Victoria...she didn't even know her age or name when she was basically rescued from a life of drugs and prostitution! The cop that saves her then adopts her and gives her a better life, lets her choose her own name...and she becomes a detective herself. She is called in on some brutal murders and Phillip a rich semi detective himself gets involved....well there are some very odd twists and turns, some romance, and this is set in the far future where there are auto drive hover cars and all kinds of cool techie stuff..the mystery was very good and I cant wait for book 2! I must say this story has a strong I, Robot vibe...and I think that rocks!

Thank you AUDIOBOOKBLAST(DOT)COM

The more things change,the more they stay the same

The future comes and it isn't pretty. Yet despite tech advances, good, solid police work is still what's needed to get the job done. With childhood histories reminiscent of Hitler Youth, the cop and the uber-rich suspect are the protagonists in this tale of grisly murder. The plot is involved and drags you in as it moves to conclusion. All of the characters are well drawn and believable.
Ms Lewis demonstrates her talents as an audio performer with skillful ease. Her voice is clear and pleasant whether in character speak or narrative. Character voices are well differentiated and given added depth.
