Resisting those who would use a revolutionary new technology for unethical purposes, doctor David Tennant and psychiatrist Rachel Weiss run for their lives from ruthless NSA agents and turn to David's unusual dreams for guidance.

Simon and Schuster

From acclaimed New York Times bestselling author Greg Iles comes a cutting-edge thriller in which the next phase of human evolution may not be human at all....

In a secret government lab, America's top scientists work on Trinity -- a supercomputer that could surpass the power of the human mind. As the project's ethicist, Dr. David Tennant works in a firestorm of limitless science and ruthless ambition. After a fellow scientist is murdered, David uncovers who the killer is. Desperate, he turns to Rachel Weiss, the psychiatrist probing the nightmares that have plagued him since joining the project, and both are forced to flee for their lives.

Pursued around the globe, David and Rachel piece together the truth behind Project Trinity, and the apocalyptic power it possesses. But Trinity's countdown has already begun, and humanity is now held hostage by a form of life that cannot be destroyed. The only hope for survival lies in the shocking connection that exists between Trinity and David's tortured mind. Mankind's future hangs in the balance -- and the price of failure is extinction.

While this story has been told in various iterations by other authors, Iles' interpretation is unique, the pace hitting break neck speed towards the end. The notion that a highly advanced AI computer could have human intelligence 'installed' resulting in a merged, all controlling 'entity', it resembles Orwell's '1984' in some respects. What's unique is this type of story is a vast departure from others Greg has written, though his character development and pacing is always spot on! Spiritual, psychological and technology questions surface continually especially during 'dreamscapes' the central character experiences. Highly recommended especially for those who enjoy merging of science fiction with thrillers.

Great story! With the discovery of the world's greatest super computer, there is nothing it cannot do from explaining the big bang theory, the purpose of life and holds all the earth's knowledge. The implications of its massive power with the ability to control and destroy nations results in the murder its top scientist. Only David Tennant holds the key to exposing Trinity's purpose in a race to avoid his own death. Spiritual and thought provoking, I could not put this book down.

Very interesting book even if a bit cheesy at times. If you take the time to slow down and actually pay attention to the ideas behind all the action and the distractions, there is plenty of material for some serious thought
