WARNING: Contains spoilers for The Korpes File.
I exchanged copies of my books for copies of J.I. Rogers’ books when we met up at a local comic con. I’ve already given a stellar review of the first book in this series, The Korpes File, which sucked me in on the night between the two days of the show when I really needed the sleep.
The Korpes Agenda is, if anything, better than the first book.
We resume contact with our unlikely, probably crazy, certainly brain-injured and PTSD-plagued hero, Nash X. Korpes, after he has escaped the clutches of KMR&D and joined tech giant Halo-Fyre in this cyberpunk dystopian world Tamyrh. KMR&D aren’t ready to let him go, and they’re spying on him… or are they? We know that Nash suffers from hallucinations and paranoia. It could all be a figment of his imagination.
But Nash hasn’t forgotten what happened to the Diasporan population, even though he was not in a position to do anything about it at the time. This time, he has a handful of powerful friends, and they want to protect the Diasporans, and put a stop to their persecution, as much as Nash does. What happens when you combine the skills of a mad genius with a seemingly-unlimited bankroll? Sh*t gets real, that’s what happens.
Politics, maneuvering, and evil corporate greed remain as much a part of the situation as they ever were, as powerful people move to counter the chess that Nash is playing. And a tantalizing mystery is revealed. You see, the voices in Nash’s head? They may not be hallucinations after all…
But Nash’s enemies have even more insidious plans in store, and even he might not be able to defeat them, especially if he self-destructs first.
Warning: this tense thriller gets highly emotional and ends on a cliffhanger. I was crying at the end, and now I really, really need to know what happens next! And Rogers hasn’t even finished writing the third book yet! DAMN her!
Again, I cannot recommend this book enough, and I can’t wait to see how the series ends!
