Chapter 1:// Execution

Reuters.com/business

Matthew A. Sobol, PhD, cofounder and chief technology officer of CyberStorm Entertainment (HSTM—Nasdaq), died today at age 34 after a prolonged battle with brain cancer. A pioneer in the $40 billion computer game industry, Sobol was the architect of CyberStorm’s bestselling online games Over the Rhine and The Gate. CyberStorm CEO Kenneth Kevault described Sobol as "a tireless innovator and a rare intellect."

What the hell just happened? That was all Joseph Pavlos kept thinking as he clenched a gloved hand against his throat. It didn't stop the blood from pulsing between his fingers. Already a shockingly wide pool had formed in the dirt next to his face. He was on the ground somehow. Although he couldn't see the gash, the pain told him the wound was deep. He rolled onto his back and stared up at a stretch of spotless blue sky.

His usually methodical mind sped frantically through the possibilities—like someone groping for an exit in a smoke-filled building. He had to do something. Anything. But what? The phrase What the hell just happened? kept echoing in his head uselessly, while blood kept spurting between his fingers. Adrenaline surged through his system, his heart beat faster. He tried to call out. No good. Blood squirted several inches into the air and sprinkled his face. Carotid artery . . .

He was pressing on his neck so hard he was almost strangling himself. And he’d been feeling so good just moments before this. He remembered that much at least. His last debts repaid. At long last.

He was getting calmer now. Which was strange. He kept trying to remember what he’d been doing. What brought him here to this place. It seemed so unimportant now. His hand began to relax its hold. He could see plainly that there was no emergency. Because there was no logical scenario in which he would emerge from this alive. And after all, it was his unequaled talent for logic that had brought Pavlos so far in life. Had brought him halfway around the world. This was it. He’d already done everything he would ever do. His peripheral vision began to constrict, and he felt like an observer. He was calm now.

And it was in that cold, detached state that he realized: Matthew Sobol had died. That’s what the news said. And then it all made sense to him. Sobol’s game finally made sense. It was beautiful really.

Clever man . . .

Présentation de l'éditeur

A man is found brutally murdered - and the only possible perpetrator happens to be dead. As more killings follow, it becomes clear that mass carnage is being planned and organised from beyond the grave.



The Daemon - a lethal and seemingly unstoppable computer program - is responsible and murder is the least of its capabilities. Masterminded by a twisted genius, the Daemon inhabits the systems on which society depends. In a world where everyone and everything is online, nothing is out of its reach. And as we are all connected, there is no escape...

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Brilliant ! 13 août 2013
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
One of my best read in the last two years !

This anticipation (or is it ?) scenario packed with more than accurate "hacking" notions kept me breathless for the few days I took devouring it.

Again with Suarez, always kind if freaky how realistic all this could be (or already is).

It's like a larger scale version of what Doctorow described with equivalent accuracy in "Little Brother"

A must read for all the social network junkies, wannabe hackers and clean-energy idealists out there ?(count me in).
A must read also for all those who think all of the above are just a fad and none of their concern :-)

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Gripping techno thriller 18 juillet 2013
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Very interesting and well-documented view of a possible future of our society. You won't let down the book before the end. However, some stereotypes in the characters and some chapters appear as "passages obligés" which do not really participate to the action with for example car chases similar to hundreds seen in many films. Useless violent episods in some parts of the book.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Quand nos données se retournent contre nous... 9 septembre 2013
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Une vision très intéressante (c'est un roman de fiction, certes, mais un nombre plus que significatif des technologies évoquées et de leurs abus existent déjà) de ce que pourrait devenir nos vies et sociétés si les big-data, Google/facebook/banques/marketeux se mettaient à exploiter jusqu'à la moelle toutes nos données.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Un bon cyber-cauchemard qui fait réfléchir 4 octobre 2013
Par Bryaxis
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
La science-fiction a, depuis longtemps, pour ambition de nous faire réfléchir sur notre présent. Ce roman et sa suite "Freedom TM" sont un très bon représentant de cette pratique même si les experts souriront à la lecture de certains passages
