Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Review: 2020.024 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: If you swallow the premise, it’s a pretty cool adventure, full of thrills, excitement, and twists. There’s even a nice little love story built into it.

Con: The idea that corporations would try to assassinate a physicist for fear his research would hurt their quarterly results is impossible to take seriously. This undermines the whole story.
