Description
"A breathtakingly original tale from the newest master of the thriller." "It could happen. The year is 2005 and a paralyzing depression threatens to collapse the United States government. Desperate to maintain America's status as a superpower, a secret military cabal lauches a supercomputer called DEUS on a quest to create the most powerful viral weaponry the world has ever seen. But DEUS has a mind of its own - literally - and the potential for global disaster escalates as the computer begins to create bizarre and deadly new life-forms in an attempt to self-destruct." "Suddenly, humankind's fate lies in the hands of Michael Riley, an unemployed computer expert and the only person skilled enough to stop the madness. But even as DEUS is propelled toward annihilation, it forges life-sustaining bonds with Riley, the woman he loves, and the fatherless little boy whom DEUS comes to regard as something truly remarkable - a friend." "In The Deus Machine, Pierre Ouellette has brilliantly recast the very latest data from the fields of biomedical research, genetic engineering, and computer science into a story of screeching excitement and breakneck pace. Technologically awesome, realistic yet intensely imagined, The Deus Machine launches what will be a groundbreaking fiction career."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
