g. Edit Decision Lists), but it gets really good again contemplating what we lose when we take an enormous leap forward with technology. In the Blink of an Eye explores the potential future of technology with an in-depth, unforgettable look at grief and humanity, and how surprisingly, one can aide the other. This allows for more of the kind of interactions that happen with the robots in the two predecessors mentioned than would have been the case if Lock had been a totally disembodied program. Therefore, In The Blink Of An Eye should be read by anyone who wants to make, or indeed, analyze film and television. The narrative is immediately engaging, the characters, not just those of Kat and Lock but the others surrounding them, create a group that the reader wants to spend time with.

Professor Okonedo also adds to the dynamic, providing additional insight into police procedure and how they work with other organisations. A rare crime novel truly as much about character as it is about plot…cried at the ending…huge potential series exploring the human AI connection. Kat and Lock are a strange pair - very different for some very obvious reasons, but beautifully paired exactly because of these differences.
