Crashing Eden is an action crime thriller with noir and whodunit underpinnings.
Had a lot of fun with this story, from envisioning virtual environments, to creating my namesake, a Russian military antagonist computer program. While a complete and genuine narrative, I consider this novel a light, fast-paced read. Exposition and backstory are minimal. The focus stays on classical cyberpunk elements and lots of action.
Once this story starts moving, it doesn’t stop.

The above description of Crashing Eden is deliberately left a bit ambiguous. The best way to read it, is to experience as it unfolds, like the main character; in the dark and unsure.
Crashing Eden Reviews
The Spirit of Cyberpunk Lives!
Crashing Eden is an exhilarating cyberpunk thriller that will keep you holding your breath from the very first page to the last. Stop what you’re doing right now and enjoy the ride. I was happy to see that it kept the true spirit of cyberpunk; too many movies or novels forget about the “punk” in cyberpunk. Loved the writing style. All the time, I had the feeling of watching a movie. Some moments reminded me a bit of Ready Player One (the overall quest about Eden), but on steroids and without all the lazzy pop cultures references.
