Backup by David Wailing

Backup is the latest in David Wailing's Auto series of short stories set in the very near future.  This particular instalment deals with what happens to your Auto after you have died.

The storytelling in this book is to the same high standard as the other Auto books, setting the scene, ramping the tension up, getting you to the edge of your seat, before the finale.  However, for me, the premise of this one didn't quite work for me as the others have.  The other stories had a "truth" about them that you fully expect the future to be like, so you don't really have to suspend your disbelief.  I can't really pinpoint what I didn't like, but then again you don't always have to like a story to enjoy reading it.
