Publisher's Summary

A terrible deed from the past threatens to overtake the life of a young man only recently rescued from the claws of death…

In one fateful moment, in the split second it takes to move from normalcy to tragedy, nearly everything that Alex Lonsdale holds dear was ripped from him. But when a doctor is able to bring him back from the very brink of death, he is considered a medical miracle - those who love him rejoice.

But when they look closely into Alex’s eyes, there is something missing there. No one knows that they should be terrified of what has just taken place, for the evil of a heinous deed that took place nearly 100 years ago has been living and waiting for this very moment, when it can claim…the Brainchild.

Compelling.

Interesting premise in the plot. How much technology and psychology work together to create pseudo life.

Another good book ruined by the narration.

This was another book I enjoyed reading years ago and was very excited to listen to, but the narration was so poorly done that by Chapter 3 I couldn't listen any longer.

The laughable attempts at female voices were the hardest part.

I think this is the book to break the camel's back, no more audio books or audible for me.

Brainchild

Another John Saul classic. Enjoyable. Clever idea. Very easy to listen to. Just the right length.
