Hopscotch by Kevin J. Anderson digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

An “ingenious” science-fiction fantasy about a man who body swaps, and the lengths he must go to get his life back, from a New York Times–bestselling author (Kirkus Reviews).

For a fee, Eduard Swan will swap bodies with people in distress—those facing surgeries, emotional crises, moments of unpleasantness, or discomfort they can’t or would rather not deal with. Eduard will experience the suffering for them. It’s a lucrative business, and in a society in which you can hopscotch from body to body, there is no end of clients seeking to avoid pain. But someone doesn’t want to play by the rules. Someone doesn’t want to return Eduard’s body. And, unfortunately for Eduard, that someone is one of the world’s most powerful men. Now Eduard has no choice but to steal back his life. He has the perfect alibi, or so he thinks. On the run with the only friends he can trust—Eduard struggles to find the meaning of identity in a culture in which appearances mean everything—and nothing. Where everything is relative . . . even murder.

Hopscotch is cracking good—swift, sure storytelling, with more plot twists than a snake and twice the bite.” —Gregory Benford, author of Eater
 
“Kevin J. Anderson is in top form in Hopscotch, a rousing tale that charges hard into territory where nobody has gone before. This one may be the most original book of the year.” —Jack McDevitt, author of Infinity Beach
