Why Not So Dead? Most readers enjoy thrillers for their fun, excitement, and uncertainty. I thought it would be interesting to combine a good thriller story and compelling characters with the wonders and worries of the latest in science and technology. The book may raise more questions than it answers about who we are and what’s important or ethical, but sometimes the questions are more significant than the answers. Aren’t they?
