“Robots and exowombs and hemp, oh my!”
Welcome to 2045. Automation has freed humanity from the drudgery and limitations of blue-collar labor. For 20 years, a remarkable group of female bureaucrats has overseen an ambitious construction program that is spreading equity, prosperity, and peace worldwide.
But Detective Ashley Westgard of the Jacksonville Police Corps senses that beneath all the glimmer and shine, a new malaise has taken root in society. From brazen acts of criminality and rampant party pill abuse, to her own insatiable desires...all is not well on the road to paradise.
Ash is beautiful, vain, headstrong, and erratic. A symbol of her time as she careens from impulsive shopping sprees to drunken fights to escapades of sin. But now that a methodical killer is on the loose, she must rise above apathy and doubt in order to forge her raging inner fire into a fearsome weapon of justice.
Philip Wyeth’s crazy fifth novel is imaginative, hilarious, sexy, and poignant. It will dazzle fans of Snow Crash, The Tomorrow File, and women who kick ass!
Note to listeners: This book contains adult language and sexual themes.

Hot Ash and the Oasis Effect was not what I expected, but it was definitely entertaining. A story packed with satirical levity and turned upside down compared to what we face today with regards to male and female roles. My only hang up was the painting of the lead character as a big bad MF was a bit overdone. The narrator did a nice job. I received a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
