“SMART delivers in droves—Mentmore writes terrific prose and dialogue that truly dazzles.”
“Joel Mentmore’s SMART, clever, quick, and pithy, is the rare novel that is fantastically contemporary, a nightmare of technology that is doubtless chilling even weeks after reading.

SMART now available in paperback as well as eBooks (Kindle, Kobo, iBooks etc).
