Unholy Domain by Dan Ronco

Unholy Domain by Dan Ronco is the second book in a science-fiction trilogy. In the first book a computer virus was released that caused a near collapse of society. This book begins 10 years later. Technology is now controlled by the government. The Mafia cells bootleg components. There are also religious fanatics wanting to destroy all of it. The sun of the man blamed for the virus tries to learn more about his father. This leads to all sorts of violence and sex.

This is a fast-paced story that I can't take too seriously. Every female character younger than 50 seems to have a bra busting chest. Violence is occasionally gratuitous and cartoonish. There's a crucifixion for instance. All that being said it's a nice way to kill a few hours. Apparently the last book in the series should be released in the summer of 2009. I'll be looking for a copy.

Note: this book was provided to me by a PR firm.
