His life was like a soap opera, but that was only the start of his troubles...
Scott Maxwell was worried. Not about his wife Fiona’s unfaithfulness, or about his brother-in-law Wilson Laird’s devious scheming, or about his other brother-in-law Roddy’s alcoholic excesses. As a member of the wealthy Laird family and part of their distilling business, such things came with the territory. Scott was more concerned about his lack of free will, his frequent memory lapses, and the fact that no-one seemed to notice when his father-in-law Hector was replaced by an imposter.
And when the reality around him collapsed, plunging him into a devastated future world, it was time for Scott to be seriously alarmed!
The Cyber Puppets is a satirical comedy written as a science fiction story. Angus has invented a soap opera plot in the style of ‘Dallas’ and ‘Dynasty’ relating to a rich family of Scots-Americans which drives the narrative. This book will appeal to science fiction readers and comedy fans alike, and will also be enjoyed by fans of Angus’s previous work.
