Lock In takes place twenty-five years after a highly contagious virus swept across the globe, leaving more than five million people “locked in:” fully awake and aware, but unable to move or respond to stimulus. When a murder involving one of the locked in takes place, it’s up to FBI agents Chris Shane and Leslie Vann to navigate from the halls of corporate power to the virtual spaces of the locked in to the very heart of an emerging, surprising new human culture.

John Scalzi is one of the most popular and acclaimed SF authors to emerge in the last decade. His massively successful debut Old Man’s War won him science fiction’s John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer. His New York Times bestsellers include The Last Colony, Fuzzy Nation, and Redshirts; which won 2013’s Hugo Award for Best Novel. Material from his widely read blog The Whatever (whatever.scalzi.com) has also earned him two other Hugo Awards. He lives in Ohio with his wife and daughter.
