Anders Jensen is having a bad month. His roommate is a data thief, his girlfriend picks fights in bars, and his best friend is a cyborg…and a lousy tipper. When everything is spiraling out of control, though, maybe those are exactly the kind of friends you need.
In a world divided between the genetically engineered elite and the unmodified masses, Anders is an anomaly: engineered, but still broke and living next to a crack house. All he wants is to land a tenure-track faculty position, and maybe meet someone who’s not technically a criminal-but when a nightmare plague rips through Hagerstown, Anders finds himself dodging kinetic energy weapons and government assassins as Baltimore slips into chaos. His friends aren’t as helpless as they seem, though, and his girlfriend’s street-magician brother-in-law might be a pretentious hipster - or might hold the secret to saving them all.
Frenetic and audacious, Three Days in April is a speculative thriller that raises an important question: once humanity goes down the rabbit hole, can we ever find our way back?

Three Days in April
Three Days in April by Ed Ashton is a fascinating techno thriller that pulled me in and wouldn't let go. With a blend of rich imagery, humor, terror and suspense this is an entertaining read. I particularly liked the style in which this book was written from the point of view of each of the main characters each of whom keep you guessing which are truly "human" vs something born from technological wizardry. While I am not typically a reader of this genre this book leaves me eagerly waiting for the next release from Mr Ashton. I highly recommend this book.
