I read a book a while ago, yet cannot for the life of me remember its name.
Sorry I cant be more specific but I'm pretty sure it was within the last 2 years. Couldn't say if it was new. But it was kind of a crime investigation, and the heroine had to venture into an area made weird by quantum computers. They caused lowered gravity, etc. These computers were developed by a search company just like Google. In fact its name was also a rip-off of Google — which I also can’t remember.
There were parts of the story set around some university in the states - I want to say Caltech but I'm not sure.
The computers caused so many problems that they were banned, but evidently some people still had some.
There might have been some AI aspects but not the quantum computers and it certainly wasn't the focus. The quantum computers also had a banana smell,
