|Plot Summary of Kaleidoscope Century|
Josh wakes up on about the year 2100 at the age of 140 with no memory.
Formally a spy/assasin (along with other occupations), josh attempts to recreate his past century with bits of memory and the help of very random conflicting notes on his computer.
Barnes' future earth is very bleak and wracked with war, contributing to a very dark feel to this book, in addition to the evil events the protaginist himself has undertook
