The Dispatcher by John Scalzi

The Dispatcher
The Dispatcher by John Scalzi
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Envision a reality where it is difficult for people to die. Tony Valdez is trained and authorised KILLER. The twist is that he kills to allow the dead to live again. Cool right?

If the cause of death is every other thing but murder,  the dead remains dead. But, if the cause of death is murder, specifically through the hands of a dispatcher, your body would mysteriously awaken back to life, naked and whole in your home. So technically, he is not a killer even if he kills people for a living.

The nature of the dispatching profession requires rules, regulations and commitment.
A decent number of a dispatcher's job involves them being close by at operation rooms in a hospital. On the off chance that the medical procedure turns out badly, the dispatcher will have to step in very fast before the patient gives up. The dispatcher will make the killing, and that's where the magic happens. The patient appears in their home alive to attempt going under the knife another day.

The rules and regulations are something some dispatchers had a problem with. They go about their business doing private and illegal gigs. Which has caused issues in the system?

This book is very unrealistic, but I respect the creative imagination of this writer. I don’t see myself rereading this material, but I was glad I gave it a try.
