An acid trip approach to investigation

Authority: A Novel - Jeff VanderMeer

Everyone in the book seems to be lying or on some kind of acid trip.


The main character is "Control" who is now interviewing "the biologist" found alive facing the walls in the parking lot after the exploration in Area X from Book 1. 


So what do the biologists know what's going on in Area X. 


She wouldn't tell or say she couldn't remember. 


Control knows she is lying.


Control also has a past. He was a bright star and his mother works in the same field too.


He didn't like the assignment. The coworkers Grace disrespect him.


He answer to the "Voice" that he thought was his mother.


A lot of strange stuff. A proper sci-fi kind of tale.


Could they escape the influence of Area X?
