Perception: a thrilling, dystopian mystery with a major twist

Eternal Life Is To Die For

Seventeen-year-old Zoe Vanderveen is a GAP—a genetically altered person. She lives in the security of a walled city on prime water-front property along side other equally beautiful people with extended life spans.

Zoe’s carefree life takes a traumatic turn when her brother Liam is murdered.

The only one who can help her find out what happened is Noah Brody, the last guy on earth she should trust.

Noah Brody is a natural who lives on the outside. He leads protests against the GAPs and detests the widening chasm they’ve created between those who have and those who don’t. He doesn’t like girls like Zoe and he has good reason not to like her specifically. He's not sure why he's agreed to help her, but what he finds out when he does, will change his life forever.

PERCEPTION is a near-future mystery that can be read alone.

Lee Strauss weaves together a great tale of intrigue and mystery. Zoe is one of those characters that you feel for even though, at times, you want to hate her guts. Noah, on the other hand, is one of those characters who draws the short end of the stick all the time. The pairing of these two characters brings forth a dynamic tale of differences between two people who are like yin and yang to one another.
Exciting, suspenseful and romantic. A good read.
This was an interesting, fast-paced, and well-thought-out novel. Consistent characterization and kept me interested the whole way through.
