A Texas gunman on a shooting spree killed Teresa Simons's husband.Recovering, Teresa vacations in a small town on the coast of England, only to discover a shocking coincidence: Bulverton also suffered the horror of a lone gunman on a spree. Both mass-murder episodes occurred on the same June day.
Seeking to explain this coincidence, Teresa falls into the virtual-reality world of Extreme Experience. She had trained previously with ExEx for her own work in intelligence, but nothing has prepared her for the new technology ... or for its effects.
The Extremes is a mesmerizing novel about the human capacity for violence -- and the way society eagerly packages it as entertainment.
