Summary
"Thomas Sweterlitsch is a superstar. ...  Tomorrow and Tomorrow  is a brutal, beautiful book. Read it." --Jesse Kellerman, internationally bestselling author of  Trouble

"Tomorrow and Tomorrow  is a rich, absorbing, relentlessly inventive mindfuck, a smart, dark noir… a wild mash-up of Raymond Chandler, Philip K. Dick, and William S. Burroughs and, like their work, utterly visionary." --Stewart O'Nan, author of  The Odds

Yesterday Can't Last Forever...

A decade has passed since the city of Pittsburgh was reduced to ash.
           
While the rest of the world has moved on, losing itself in the noise of a media-glutted future, survivor John Dominic Blaxton remains obsessed with the past. Grieving for his wife and unborn child who perished in the blast, Dominic relives his lost life by immersing in the Archive--a fully interactive digital reconstruction of Pittsburgh, accessible to anyone who wants to visit the places they remember and the people they loved.
           
Dominic investigates deaths recorded in the Archive to help close cases long since grown cold, but when he discovers glitches in the code surrounding a crime scene--the body of a beautiful woman abandoned in a muddy park that he's convinced someone tried to delete from the Archive--his cycle of grief is shattered.
           
With nothing left to lose, Dominic tracks the murder through a web of deceit that takes him from the darkest corners of the Archive to the ruins of the city itself, leading him into the heart of a nightmare more horrific than anything he could have imagined.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "In the not-too-distant future, a mysterious explosion has reduced the city of Pittsburgh to rubble and ashes. A virtual-reality re-creation of it, the Archive, allows people to revisit the lost city and lost loved ones. John Blaxton, who lost his wife and unborn child, investigates deaths long since relegated to files in the Archive. Then he finds a murder victim not recorded in the Archive. Is the line between physical and virtual reality breaking down? Or is there some other and possibly more sinister explanation? A very good job of keeping cyberpunk (which has lost much of its original connection to punk culture) up-to-date in its extrapolation of cybernetics and culture.--Green, Roland Copyright 2014 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Sweterlitsch's strong debut takes place 10 years after a terrorist's nuclear bomb obliterates much of Pittsburgh. Dominic Braxton's pregnant wife was killed in the attack. Now he investigates insurance claims stemming from deaths using Pittsburgh's City Archive, a virtual reality memorial constructed from surveillance footage and photographs. He also uses the Archive to obsessively relive time with his wife. The case of a young woman murdered shortly before the blast leads to another "missing" woman-Albion Waverly, deceased daughter of the super-rich effective ruler of the online world-whose Archive presence is being systematically deleted. Dominic dives into a world where identities can be erased but crimes cannot, his virtual wife is the least he might lose, and an enemy may be his only hope of survival. Sweterlitsch takes an unusual turn in that Dominic closes in on the truth by shredding connections between virtual and real, and the more he operates in the real world, the more vivid and compelling the story becomes.
