"NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center is designing a probe which will be dropped into the Kraken Mare, one of the methane seas of Titan. There, it will embark on a journey of exploration. As the probe is being tested at Goddard, things go awry, and an explosion kills seven scientists. The AI program in the probe, a powerful, self-modifying AI called "Dorothy," flees into the Internet. Series character Wyman Ford is tapped by the president's science advisor to track down the software with the help of Dorothy's creator, Melissa Shepherd. As the two of them trace Dorothy in her wanderings in cyberspace, they realize Dorothy's horrific experiences in the wasteland of the Internet have changed her--utterly. But for the better . . . or worse? At the same time, they learn Dorothy is being pursued by a pair of Wall Street high-frequency traders, who want to turn her into an algorithmic-trading slave-bot. Pursued relentlessly by the traders, Dorothy jumps out of the Internet into a child's toy robot, to hide. Now the only person standing between the murderous algo traders and Dorothy is a lonely, twelve-year-old boy living on an isolated bay on the coast of northern California. But is Dorothy bent on doing good . . . or on wiping out the cancer of the human race?"--… (més)

Enjoyed the premise, ending left me a little flat but was a good story all around. ( )

Loved this. I love the idea of AI becoming intelligent enough to have a conscience. This was the 100th book of my self imposed 100 book challenge. Glad I finished on such a good note. ( )

When I first picked this up glanced at the reviews and it seemed either people loved it or hated it. Surprisingly enough found an unusually large number of readers who did not finish it which is unusual for a Douglas Preston book. My guess is that it doesn't fit comfortably with some of his other books and, to some, have a feeling they felt it was a bit far-fetched almost being science fiction.

This is a book that has to be approached with an open mind. If you do, it will be a worthwhile decision and take you to an interesting cutting edge AI computer adventure. What seems like it could be science fiction is in reality something that could conceivably happen within the just a few years, maybe even today. Yes this is different from the other Wyman Ford thrillers but is very much in tune with what could be a realistic use of his talents. So, he isn't the principal character but he is the critical fulcrum which pulls together and balances the story effectively. Overall found this a very interesting techno thriller and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys science and action based thrillers. ( )

Entertaining but I had to work hard to put aside the cardboard characters and bad writing. Good ideas but very badly executed. Disappointed. ( )
