It is the future, and while the world has changed, crime has not. Mimic is the second novel in The Identity Trilogy written by Mel Odom and set in the gritty, cyber-noir world of Android. The story of New Angeles Detective Drake 3GI2RC continues as he navigates the tangled web of lies and corruption that lie in wait around every corner.
Drake is not your average Bioroid. First, he’s one of the New Angeles Police Department’s few android cops, and second, he’s haunted by the memories of another man, Simon Blake. As Drake investigates a very public crime, he must also look inward for answers to questions about his identity. After all, where does his programming end, and his own personality begin?
When we last left Drake, he was vividly and actively exploring the memories of Simon Blake. While reliving Simon Blake’s memory, Drake found himself on vacation in a tropical locale on a beach with Blake’s wife, Mara. The idyllic vacation quickly took a turn for the worse when a team of kidnappers appeared out of the ocean.
The story unfolds as Drake and Mara try to escape their pursuers and Drake continues to struggle to make sense of his actions within the context of events that have already happened.
