Myers is a Relic. Cast out of society by a computer program that's far more efficient at managing and regulating human life than any human ever could be.
The System is running everyone's life. It's quickly becoming smarter than humans, and it no longer has any need for leaders like Myers. There's a technological singularity coming, and only Myers knows how to stop it.
The problem? He doesn't remember anything from the past 15 years. And now he's being hunted.

"What's the alternative to a plan?" Myers wakes up not knowing where he is, or why he's there. He can't even remember who he is. But he is alone, nothing in sight except a ruined city. So he goes there. Which is where he discovers he is running for his life.
After a really intriguing story start, the plot slowly unwinds as a vision of the society is disclosed. And it is a terrifying one of computer control.
It is fast paced and action packed as well as being replete with technical stuff which, I confess, I didn't understand but which added to the authenticity. As well as battle scenes and computer programs, there's subdefuge and double dealing. Unfortunately, just as the story was reaching a peak, it ended, obviously to be continued. But this was annoying, nevertheless.
The excellent David Dear was the narrator - always a pleasure to listen to his pleasant voice reading: clear, well cadenced and with distinct voicings for all of the protagonists. I received a complimentary copy of Relics: One, at my request, from the rights holder, via Audiobook Boom. Thank you. This is obviously set be be a thrilling series, or serial, rather. Although it is an exciting listen, please note that at least one other book, and possibly more, will need to be purchased to complete the story.
