See what early readers are saying about MURDER IN THE GENERATIVE KITCHEN:
An intriguing take on the legal and moral issues arising from our ever-increasing, ever-more-ubiquitous technology.
Now and again, you read a story that strings you along. You periodically sniff with self-importance and make clever little mental judgements about how it’ll end and anticipate the characters’ actions. Then, you reach the last page and in a groaning moment of “oh snap” you recognize that the author has led you the whole way; your deductions were exactly what they intended; and, in short, you were stupidly easy to misdirect into focusing on the wrong things entirely...Well played, Ms. Pontecorvo. Well played.
With the Vacation Jury Duty system, jurors can lounge on a comfortable beach while watching the trial via virtual reality. Julio is loving the beach, as well as the views of a curvy fellow juror with a rainbow-lacquered skin modification who seems to be the exact opposite of his recent ex-girlfriend back in Chicago. Because of jury sequestration rules, they can’t talk to each other at all, or else they’ll have to pay full price for this Acapulco vacation. Still, Julio is desperate to catch her attention. But while he struts and tries to catch her eye, he also becomes fascinated by the trial at hand.
At first it seemed a foregone conclusion that the woman on trial used a high-tech generative kitchen to feed her husband a poisonous meal, but the more evidence mounts, the more Julio starts to suspect the kitchen may have made the decision on its own.
