The ambiguous blurb on the cover hides a surprising complexity within. Sequence is a gritty and complex tale, requiring full attention throughout. Told from the two viewpoints (one in the future and one now, with a few 'flashbacks' sprinkled in) the story unfolds on several levels, many times and varying locations. Initially this is somewhat disorientating and almost nonsensical, however once Dawson begins character development in earnest the story becomes more engaging. Never particularly tense, Sequence's high points are sourced from the cleverly conceived and executed plot. The characters offer a little emotional pull, however Sequence can at times be rather wordy, a unnecessary distraction. Ultimately Sequence is a proper sci-fi thriller, big on theory which is well explained and with a plot that is very memorable. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0956577016, Paperback)

A naked male, dead in an alleyway with bullets that don't make sense. A note, written in 13th Century Latin secreted about his person along with the name and room number of an autistic mental patient. Fingerprints burned away and tattoos completely removed. Of all the possible duties, the last task LAPD detective Nick Lambert wanted was the drive to Oakdene to interview the girl. It gets worse when he discovers that as well as being autistic, she's also mute.

But when an off-hand comment from the nurse piques Nick's attention, he can't help but follow the lead. What he finds will turn his entire world - his entire existence - upside down. Clues to the location of valuable stone tablets, the only tablets described in Exodus as being 'written by the hand of God'. These are not the Ten Commandments… these are ALL the commandments and Nick suddenly finds himself at the heart of a centuries old battle to find, and hide, the kind of extremely valuable information that mankind was never meant to possess.

It is only when Nick realises he was a key player in the game long before it started, and that he will be a key player long after it is over, that he will discover the true importance of those around him. Nick has no so inadvertently stumbled into the most important human being who has ever lived. One who will not only change the world once, but will do it over and over again.

He will discover many things about the girl.

What she has to hide is the most important thing of all.
