A great scifi thriller set in the near future! A contagious disease affecting the entire world causes those afflicted by it to be "locked in", completely paralyzed but fully aware of their surroundings. The people have created technology to meet this challenge. Those who are "locked in" can use the technology implanted in their brain to transport themselves into a robotic body or even into the body of another human known as an Integrator. When an Integrator is found at the scene of a murder, larger questions of humans versus technology come to the forefront. ~ Reviewed by Jessica Elder
