#BookReview: Kill Code by Clive Fleury

It's the year 2031. Our future. Their present. A world decimated by climate catastrophe, where the sun's heat is deadly and the ocean rises higher every day. A world ruled by the rich, powerful, and corrupt. A world where a good man can't survive for long.
Hogan Duran was a good man once. He was a cop, forced to resign in disgrace when he couldn't save his partner from a bullet. Now Hogan lives on the fraying edges of society, serving cruel masters and scavenging trash dumps just to survive.
But after four years of living in poverty, Hogan finally gets a chance to get back on his feet. He's invited to join the National Security Council, the powerful paramilitary organization responsible for protecting the rich and powerful from the more unsavory elements of society. All he needs to do is pass their deadly entrance exam, and he'll be rewarded with wealth and opportunity beyond his wildest dreams. 
But this ex-cop's path to redemption won't be easy. The NSC are hiding something, and as Hogan descends deeper and deeper into their world, he starts to uncover the terrible truth of how the powerful in this new world maintain their power...and just how far they will go to protect their secrets. 
In a world gone wrong, can one man actually make a difference, or will he die trying?

Rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟
My Review: This was a good paced title with a lot of plot twists that I just didn't see coming which was great! I really didn't care for the cover to this one. I thought it was very blended together.  Political issues are a major role in this one so if that isn't your thing this book may not be for you.  But I say still give it a try because it was really good.  This book was very short but also very full. I was very surprised how much the author really added to the story as it just doesn't feel like its under 200 pages.  The characters are wonderful and although I didn't connect with anyone I loved Ruby, Hogan, and Clive. The VR aspect of this one reminded me of Ready Player One and others like it.  If you are a science fiction fan then check this one out.
