Daniel Suarez's New York Times bestselling debut high-tech thriller is “so frightening even the government has taken note” ( Entertainment Weekly). Daemons: computer programs that silently run in the background, waiting for a specific event or time to execute. They power almost every service. They make our networked world possible. But they also make it vulnerable.
When the obituary of legendary computer game architect Matthew Sobol appears online, a previously dormant daemon activates, initiating a chain of events that begins to unravel our interconnected world. This daemon reads news headlines, recruits human followers, and orders assassinations. With Sobol’s secrets buried with him, and as new layers of his daemon are unleashed, it’s up to Detective Peter Sebeck to stop a self-replicating virtual killer before it achieves its ultimate purpose—one that goes far beyond anything Sebeck could have imagined.

Not terrible, but I wouldn't recommend it. ' • Tessie 2/14/2014 ' This book was slow to begin with and kind of boring until half way through.
I didn't want to stop reading it and I'm glad I kept reading. It had an interesting turn of events and I'm debating whether to read the second one. All in all I'm glad I gave it a chance.
' • Brad 2/2/2014 ' Very good book about computer programs taking control over the world. Gigabyte download bios. A very quick read because you will never want to put it down. ' • Lisa 1/31/2014 ' Great concept that I enjoyed up until part 3.
After that it succumbed to Hollywooditis and become a shoot 'em up action movie er book, almost in the vein of Transformers. Then the last chapter became intriguing again. So almost a four star but it kind of blew it in the climax. I'm interested enough to read Freedom however. ' • Chuma 1/27/2014 ' If I hear 'The technology is commercially available' one more time.
' • Nullstream 1/16/2014 ' Fun, plausible and genuinely entertaining. ' • Asad 1/9/2014 ' great story with a twist and interesting details. Best AI novel ' • Rachel 1/6/2014 ' Interesting concept of technology playing a role in changing the course of humanity. A bit wordy at times, but overall a good read.
' • Prashant ' Excellent plot with enough identifiable real-life hacking scenario to make nearly plausible. ' • Steven ' Excellent book, looking forward to reading the next. Ending was a bit sudden. ' • Katie ' Fantastic first book in a 2 bk series. If you enjoy Sci fi/speculative fiction at all, I'd recommend this book. Jared read it first & insisted that I read it as well. ' • Jamie 8/26/2013 ' Fantastic, though I hope it doesn't give a crazy tech genius any ideas, or else we are all doomed.
' • Bush 8/21/2013 ' Cover to cover this was a unique read that I can't recommend enough. If you play games, love tech, and wish you could change the world, your cheating yourself by passing this up. ' • Eric 6/15/2013 ' Nice first outing, looking forward to reading more from this author. ' • Ryan ' Incredible techno-thriller. Great heroes and villains, cool tech, can't wait to read Freedom(TM). ' • Howard 8/30/2012 ' Recommended by Rick Excellent, Thank you Rick.
