    Cayce Pollard is an expensive, spookily intuitive market-research consultant. In London on a job, she is offered a secret assignment: to investigate some intriguing snippets of video that have been appearing on the Internet. An entire subculture of people is obsessed with these bits of footage, and anybody who can create that kind of brand loyalty would be a gold mine for Cayce's client. But when her borrowed apartment is burgled, she realizes there's more to this project than she had expected.

    Overall

    I read a lot of espionage - thriller type books and I really didn't ever get into this book. I had forgotten the subject matter as I was listening on my iPod, and had to go back to Audible to find out what it was really about, and I had listened to 1/2 hour of the book. Can't recommend.

    Devilishly clever, Next blends fact and fiction into a breathless tale of a new world where nothing is what it seems, and a set of new possibilities can open at every turn. Next challenges our sense of reality and notions of morality. Balancing the comic and bizarre with the genuinely frightening and disturbing, Next shatters our assumptions and reveals shocking new choices where we least expect.

    Ronald says: "interesting topic - dull, boring, confusing book"
    "This was awful"
    Overall

    This is the worst book that Michael Crichton has ever written. It has to do about Genes and has many different story lines that either come together or don't. Lots of reading of headlines about what is going on with Gene therapy and creation of 'transgendered' animals and plants. I real muddle into a boring subject.

    When British and American intelligence catch wind of a major Al Qaeda operation in the works, they instantly galvanize, but to do what? They know nothing about it: the what, where, or when. They have no sources in Al Qaeda, and it's impossible to plant someone. Or is it?

    BobInWA says: "Slow Part 1 - Great Part 2"
    "A great listen"
    Overall

    Forsyth at the top of his game. I loved it, as I have everything he has written. It's clever, tight, and suspensful. A great twisting plot with wonderful characters in a plot that could happen. Well worth my time.

    In six minutes, one of us would be dead. None of us knew it was coming. So says Wes Holloway, a once-cocky and ambitious presidential aide, about the day that changed his life forever. On that Fourth of July, Wes put Ron Boyle, the chief executive's oldest friend, into the presidential limousine. By the time the trip came to an end, Wes was permanently disfigured, and Boyle was dead, the victim of a crazed assassin.

    Nick says: "Too Much Psychobabble"
    "Waste of Time"
    Overall

    I agree with another reviewer that the books takes forever to get anywhere and is simply not believable. I have read this author before, and remember liking the books. In this one, the premise is wierd, the characters wooden, and the book tedious.
