James Bannon’s debut novel, i2, is a gripping psychological thriller built on a bold science-fiction premise. On the eve of creating a revolutionary procedure by which memories can be uploaded and stored, renowned bio-software engineer Edward Frame is diagnosed with terminal cancer. Secretly turning the procedure upon himself, Frame prepares to begin life again. But something goes terribly wrong. Instead of returning to the woman he loves, Edward is born into the family of his rival: a man who has stolen his company, his fortune, his widow and his children. His towering intellect and experience trapped in the form of a helpless child, Edward Frame embarks on an odyssey of life that is in turns exhilarating and terrifying, joyous and tragic.
As the plot races from one twist to the next, Bannon cleverly elevates his page-turning thriller into a profound exploration of the growth of the human soul and the true meaning of sacrifice and love.
