Absolutely a must-read! "Reality Check" started out a bit boring- I'm not fond of small-town stories- but quickly turned into a page turner that (literally) had me with a flashlight under the covers. The story is written in such a way that at every turn you suspect another person. I was especially satisfied with the way Abrahams brought the mystery to a close at the second-to-last page, leaving a few questions as to what the future would be like while at the same time making sure you knew all you needed to. Great work.
