What if today was your last day…
UK & Commonwealth: 18 March 2021
A bomb has exploded during a fashion show, killing a beautiful model on the catwalk. The murderer is still at large… and he may strike again. Yet this is the least of Police Commissioner Christian Verger’s worries. His fiancée Viola has left him. He has to keep his tumultuous past a secret. To make things worse, his voice assistant Alexa is 99.74% sure he will die tomorrow.
Moving from snowy 1980s Montana to chic 1990s Manhattan to a drone-filled 2030s Britain, Future Perfect is an electrifying race to solve a murder before it’s too late. Yet it is also a love story, a riveting portrait of a couple torn apart by secrets, grief and guilt. A twisted tale of how the past can haunt a person’s future and be used to predict if he will die… or kill.
“A thought-provoking, twisty and emotional thriller that had me gripped from the first page.”—Roz Watkins
“Felicia Yap’s Future Shock, set a few years into our own future, is a high concept crime novel that speaks directly to the world unfolding around us. Shortly after a terrorist attack, Police Commissioner Christian Verger’s Alexa informs him that he has a 99.74% chance of dying within the next 24 hours. The stage is set for high drama. Because in 2030 Alexa is never wrong… With a knowing nod to Minority Report, Yap delivers a twisty techno-thriller with a human heart.”—Vaseem Khan
