Science Fiction • 16 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

The world we live in is almost entirely controlled by daemons, high-tech computers. Matthew Sobol was the man responsible for a large number of these daemons, a genius who could never enjoy his success and eventually took his own life. But when his obituary appears online, an unknown daemon reactivates—and sets out to destroy everything in its path. A taut techno-thriller, this novel unravels at a frantic pace, but narrator Jeff Gurner never struggles to stay ahead of his listener. Gurner sounds like a young, intelligent entrepreneur, much like the ill-fated Sobol. However, Gurner never gives in to the intensity of the story, instead getting better in his straightforward delivery as it plows forward. The result is a novel filled with twists that seem to shock the narrator as much as they do his listener. L.B. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2009]
