Editorial Reviews

“A turbo-charged techno-thriller…. Sawyer offers an escape from the recent run of near-future dystopias in a combination of classic and contemporary science fiction.” - Publishers Weekly“One surprise after another…. Triggers is constantly gripping on the surface and seriously provocative deep down.” - The Wall Street Journal“The Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author of Calculating God and the WWW Trilogy delivers a tense, race-against-the-clock adventure with a surprise ending. It should appeal to mainstream thriller readers as well as its target market.” - Library Journal“Triggers has the hard-core military/political insights of Robert A. Heinlein, and the compassion of Theodore Sturgeon.” - Jonathan Vos Post
