Jacob Kelley's family is turned upside down when an old friend turns up, waving a gun and babbling about an alien quantum intelligence. The mystery deepens when the friend is found dead in an underground bunker…apparently murdered the night before he appeared at Jacob's house. Jacob is arrested for the murder and put on trial.
As the details of the crime slowly come to light, the weave of reality becomes ever more tangled, twisted by a miraculous new technology and a quantum creature unconstrained by the normal limits of space and matter. With the help of his daughter, Alessandra, Jacob must find the true murderer before the creature destroys his family and everything he loves.
I have never read anything by this author. Now that I have read this book, I plan to keep this author on my radar. OMG! I feel hard for this book. My only flaw was that I started it late in the evening and so I had to put it down to get some sleep. Yet, you can bet that once I got up and carved myself out some time, I jumped right back into this book. It was not long before I was finished with it.
This book may be fiction but it could read as if it was nonfiction. I could totally imagine this really happening in today's world. Sci-fi/tech readers will really enjoy this book. Also, anyone wanting to check out this genre should as you will be hooked.
The way that this book was formatted with the past and the present alternating with each chapter was great. I really understood the who "down and up spin". I was so memorized by what was happening in this book that I could not stop reading. A must read for sure! I will be checking out more books by this author.
