About this item
It's 2050, and LAPD Detective Terri Pastuzka has drawn the short straw with her first assignment of the new decade. One of the city's countless immigrants is dead, but this case is going nowhere. The plight of recent refugees (even the dead ones) to America is nothing more than an irritating speck of dust in the eye of the city. Even Terri herself is already looking ahead to her next case, before an unexpected development reveals there’s much more to this case than she ever could have imagined.Using her PanOpts, high-tech eyewear that allows the user to view their life through an intense form of augmented reality, Terri combs through files and possible suspects, literally inserting herself into the crime scene using security footage captured from every angle the day the murder occurred. What started as a single homicide turns into a string of unsolved murders that tie together in frightening ways, leading Terri down a rabbit-hole through Los Angeles’s conflicting realitiesaugmented and virtual, fantastically rumored and harrowingly trueand towards an impossible conclusion.Exploded View is the story of a city frozen in crisis, haunted by hardship and overwhelmed by refugees, where technology gives everyday citizens the power to digitally reshape messaging, movies, and even news in real time, where hard video evidence is impotent against the sheer, unrelenting power of belief. After all, when someone can forge their own version of the truth, what use is anyone else's reality?
