Produktbeschreibung
This high-tech thriller for the wireless age explores the unthinkable consequences of a computer program running without human control--a daemon--designed to dismantle society and bring about a new world order. Available in a tall Premium Edition.
Daniel Suarez s New York Times bestselling debut high-tech thriller is so frightening even the government has taken note (Entertainment Weekly).

Daemons: computer programs that silently run in the background, waiting for a specific event or time to execute. They power almost every service. They make our networked world possible. But they also make it vulnerable...

When the obituary of legendary computer game architect Matthew Sobol appears online, a previously dormant daemon activates, initiating a chain of events that begins to unravel our interconnected world. This daemon reads news headlines, recruits human followers, and orders assassinations. With Sobol s secrets buried with him, and as new layers of his daemon are unleashed, it s up to Detective Peter Sebeck to stop a self-replicating virtual killer before it achieves its ultimate purpose one that goes far beyond anything Sebeck could have imagined...

Rezensionen
Daemon does for surfing the web what Jaws did for swimming in the ocean...both entertaining and credible...an impressive debut novel. Chicago Sun-Times

A chilling yet entirely plausible story of technology gone awry. St. Petersburg Times

Fiendishly clever...an almost perfect guilty-pleasure novel. The Dallas Morning News

A riveting debut. Publishers Weekly (starred review)

This thrill-a-nanosecond novel is certainly faithful to the techno-traditions of Michael Crichton and should delight not only readers of the 'science gone awry' genre, but general adventure readers as well. Booklist

Suarez's not-just-for-gamers debut is a stunner. Kirkus Reviews

Greatest. Technothriller. Period. Suarez presents a fascinating account of autonomous logic-based terrorism, incorporating current and anticipated technologies to create a credible and quite clever story. William O'Brien, Former Director of Cybersecurity and Communications Policy, The White House

Daemon is the real deal a scary look at what can go wrong as we depend increasingly on computer networks. Craig Newmark, Founder Craigslist
