It’s a good thing that real top secret government projects aren’t run as they are in books like this, or we’d be facing an acute shortage of heroic scientists. Iles (Dead Sleep) crams in some big ideas: There’s an advanced computer based on molecular copies of human brains, while the tormented protagonist-on-the-run has dreams that may or may not be the visions of Christ. But Iles also packs his book with wooden characters, leaden dialogue, and a narrative that annoyingly flip-flops from first person to third. There’s a germ of a good tale here, but Footprints unfortunately bears the clumsy thumbprints of its author.
