2.0 out of 5 starsdisappointing....
Reviewed in the United States on October 12, 2016
very disappointing from Dale Brown. He (and DeFelice) usually write great techno thrillers, but in this case it fell flat. Boring plot line (somewhat copied from his Tin Man technology), plodding pace (at least 100 pages too long), two separate and not very connected plot lines...just a disappointment all around. I usually read a Brown novel in one sitting...I had to force myself to get through this thing over a two week period. Kept hoping it would get better, but no joy....
I felt somewhat let down reading this novel. Both Dale Brown and Jim DeFelice have been my go to authors for years, but somehow, this particular book felt like a preview. The whole book seemed to exist as a prelude to another central core set of subjects in future books featuring A. I. developers and users. So, it was technically OK, but not very satisfactory.

A classic case of cashing in on the success of previous work by coming out with a c rated blurb. Sci fi voodoo, poorly developed characters, senseless plot. Take some time with your next book and return to exciting stories with interesting characters.

Only listened for 2 hours, then gave up I could not believe Dale Brown wrote this book. the first 2 hours are awful. I was a great fan of Dale Brown till now. I would like to read other GENUINE review's.

I have read all of Dale Brown books and most of Jim DeFelice. This book never got going. Took me forever to read and was extremely happy when I finally did get to the end of it. Not sure if this book is a set up for a new series but it just did not make it as a "good read". I am sorry writing this review because I am a big fan of both authors.
