A Vision of Unity
The Tamboli Sequence, Book One
Three science fiction novels exploring the impact of unreliable histories, all linked by a man called Tamboli.
Raj Tamboli has a vision: to unite a fractured world, everyone must be neurally linked to a shared online environment known as the Stream – but at what cost?
In order to avert a looming nuclear holocaust, Raj risks everything to fulfil his vision. Millions die. Carole Cantor is the last person to see him and vows to hold him to account.
Two centuries later, the resultant world basks in an unprecedented era of peace thanks to Raj Tamboli’s vision. So why are people dying mysteriously in their sleep? Only historian Kofi Albus is in a position to find out.
Carole and Kofi's lives resonate across the centuries to reveal the truth behind Raj Tamboli's botched gamble. How can Kofi learn the lessons of history when that history turns out to be a lie?
