The robots were good. The Russian thugs were evil. But then. . .
It's 2050, and self-learning Helper androids have proven invaluable servants to humans, making their lives easier, even saving them.
But to their horror, retired SEAL Patrick Jensen and his wife Leah discover that rogue programmers and Russian mobsters are reprogramming the trusted robots to murder their wealthy owners. The crooks then skillfully disguise the lifelike robots as their dead masters, directing the robot mimics to plunder the victims’ estates of billions of dollars.
But neither the corrupt engineers nor the greedy thugs realize what catastrophe they have wrought in giving the robots autonomous abilities.
They have created a new race of networked, “hive-minded” sentient creatures driven by a relentless survival instinct: the Neuromorphs.
Patrick must enlist his SEAL team to marshal their combat skills and futuristic firepower to thwart the seemingly unstoppable evolution of a new dominant species on the planet.
If you are a techno thriller fan than you will be in for a real treat with this book. While, a majority of the characters may be robots aka neuromorphs; they did a good job of interacting with the humans. In fact, they may have performed better than some of the humans. The robots may have pulled off existing as humans if it was not for the "small" matter of Garry catching one of them in the action of murder. Together Garry teams up with Patrick and his wife to stop the neuromorphs.
What made this book intriguing besides the great, refreshing storyline was the idea that this could become reality. We are moving towards robots now in our workforce. It is predicated that in the future that more and more jobs will be performed by robots or computers. As we relay more on technology, we lose our ability to think and perform for ourselves. If you are looking for something new and thrilling to read, you have to pick up a copy of this book.
