Cold People

I feel like the ending of this book was a bit rushed, and am really hoping for a sequel, but I could not put this book down.

I started and finished it today and will probably add it to my list of books I reread every few years.

I am new to Daniel Suarez but, after two books, I am enjoying what I've read.
