In the heart of North Carolina’s Research Triangle stands a corporate laboratory much like the others nearby. But behind its walls, America’s top scientists work around the clock to attain the holy grail of the twenty-first century—a supercomputer that surpasses the power of the human mind.

Appointed by the president as ethicist to Project Trinity, Dr. David Tennant finds himself in a pressure cooker of groundbreaking science and colossal ambition. When his friend and fellow scientist is murdered, David discovers that the genius who runs Project Trinity was responsible and that his own life is in danger. Unable to reach the president, and afraid to trust his colleagues, David turns to Rachel Weiss, the psychiatrist probing the nightmares that have plagued him during his work at Trinity. Rachel is skeptical of David’s fears, but when an assassin strikes, the two doctors must flee for their lives.

Pursued across the globe by ruthless National Security Agency operatives, David and Rachel struggle to piece together the truth behind Project Trinity and the enormous power it could unleash upon the world. As constant danger deepens their intimacy, Rachel realizes the key to Trinity lies buried in David’s disturbed mind. But Trinity’s clock is ticking.…

Mankind is being held hostage by a machine that cannot be destroyed. Its only hope—a terrifying chess game between David and the Trinity computer, with the cities of the world as pawns. But what are the rules? How human is the machine? Can one man and woman change the course of history? Man’s future hangs in the balance, and the price of failure is extinction.

    " Good, fast-paced thriller about artificial intelligence. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marcia | 2/9/2014

    " I can't put this down! After all the heavy books I've been reading this was a great mindless one! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jim Smoak | 2/8/2014

    " This was a great conspiricy thriller, and I would've rated it higher, but Iles took a Biblical and philisophical bent that was way out there. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shirl Truscott | 2/3/2014

    " A great read once you get into it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 1/28/2014

    " Such intricate details, amazing plot. Really makes you think! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa Lilly | 1/26/2014

    " What I love about Greg Isles is that he tackles so many different subject areas and settings in his thrillers. This one begins focused on a secret government research lab. There, a select group of scientists work to create a supercomputer modeled after the human mind that will be far more powerful. Dr. Peter Tennant was appointed by the president as the ethicist on Project Trinity and is troubled by aspects of the work even before his closest friend on the project dies, supposedly of a stroke. Tennant and the other scientists on the project each exhibit neurological problems that started after a brain scan as part of the project. As he delves into his friend's death, Tennant struggles with narcoplepsy and has visions with religious aspects that he comes to believe may be memories. His psychiatrist, Rachel Weiss, tries to help, and both end up on the run across the globe from those who wish to protect Project Trinity at all costs. Tennant and Weiss are determined to stop the supercomputer before it causes the extinction of humankind. The book's themes are large and thought-provoking. I found the characters less interesting and never was quite invested in their personal stories, other than, ironically, that of the doctor who dies at the beginning of the book. The action sequences are overall compelling, if a bit hard to believe. This is one of several books I read while recovering from surgery I had in early summer, so I wasn't feeling great and perhaps that colored my view of the book a bit. At times it just didn't hold my interest, but I finished it and found it worth the read. "

    " Great book, I love all his books "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mela Ekasari | 12/24/2013

    " bukunya lumayan seru, tapi banyak penjelasan-penjelasan yang panjang & akhirnya bikin agak membosankan.. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deena | 12/19/2013

    " Interesting read, but ultimately unsatisfying. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cheri | 12/4/2013

    " ughhhhhh.... I found this book to be a total snore! And so, so weird! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Daelith | 12/4/2013

    " This was an okay audio book, but not something I'd want to read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Helen | 11/19/2013

    " I have read several other Greg Iles books that I really did enjoy.. This one not so much! So, I guess I was disappointed but I will read another of his because I have faith I will like the next one I try! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cole Heramb | 8/18/2013

    " A great book much like a Dan Brown novel. I much enjoyed reading about the super computer threatening society and the main character's fight for survival. It was a compelling and interesting story with something for everyone "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mark Polson | 7/4/2013

    " This is a good book. I almost gave it four stars, but it's not quite that good. It has an interesting sci-fi concept: downloading a human mind to a computer. If you like the techie sci-fi books, this isn't bad. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Yvonne | 9/17/2012

    " too scientific for me "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Joe O'c | 7/10/2012

    " Good; Begins well with doctor overseeing at the President's orders the plan to make a computer modeled after the human brain; each of the participants gets side affects including his of believing he's been sent by God to stop the project. Drags toward the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori | 5/18/2011

    " Good book - sort of like The Da Vince Code and Angels and Demons in that it makes you think about your beliefs - this time about creation, Jesus and the Resurrection, and such. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jerald | 5/15/2011

    " Good plot, nice story, not much of a mystery, cat and mouse labyrinth...expected for an action/thriller novel,...but I enjoy reading it with a bit of suspense "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David | 5/10/2011

    " Iles can move from WWII to the New South to mysteries to near-future science fiction, which is what you have here. It was provocative with its theological aspect. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aileen | 4/4/2011

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jonathan | 2/18/2011

    " This was really good and very well researched by the author. If you are looking for a science versus religion book, this will hit the spot. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sheri | 2/10/2011

    " I like Iles, but this one didn't do it for me. I can only shake my head and ask what was he thinking? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Suncat09 | 2/7/2011

    " not as good as most Greg Iles books "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Celia | 1/12/2011

    " Started out great. I blasted through the first few hundred pages, then it went downhill, blasphemous even. Definitely not written by someone with any understanding of God. Even taking that into consideration, I found it hard to finish. "
