Stunning Japanese novel with a chilling twist - the follow-up to Ring and Spiral.

Kaoru's father, Hideyuki, lies dying in a Tokyo hospital, his body ravaged by viral cancer. This nightmarish incurable disease has sprung out of nowhere and has begun to affect organisms all over the planet.

Twenty years ago Hideyki worked on a virtual reality project which replicated evolution on earth, called the Loop. The project failed when the organisms within it inexplicably stopped reproducing normally and started cloning. Nearly all of the other scientists who worked on the Loop are already dead - from cancer.

To get to the heart of the mystery, Kaoru must travel to the other side of the planet, to the Mojave desert. The secret he encounters there will overturn everything he thought he knew about the world - and his own identity.

In this suspense-filled follow-up to 'Ring' and 'Spiral', Suzuki masterfully confounds the reader with a stunning new twist on the Ring mythology.

In all honesty, this was my favorite of the series. I recommend it for everyone, even those who haven't read the first two. I was so enthralled with Suzuki's philosophical "rambles". This one is probably the fastest and easiest read of the three. This book also seemed to be translated over better than Spiral. The only complaint I have about it though, is that they give too many clues. It wasn't that hard to figure out, and by about 2/3 of the way in I was sure about what was going on. This book is great if you want to something thought provoking but for a mystery or thriller, look another place.
