AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Unknown to the world, a superintelligence has emerged – and it wants to eliminate Bram Argent . . .

'The superintelligence can control any machine connected to the net, and it uses them as its unstoppable agents to achieve its ends. And the superintelligence is paranoid. Controlling the entire world is its only way to ensure its own existence.

'Bram's mother is a high-level computer scientist. She's been investigating the possibility of the emergence of a superintelligence and she has evidence. But the superintelligence has become aware of her – and decided she needs to be eliminated. Now she's in hiding.

'Bram must flee and find his parents – while being hunted by every machine on the planet. His friend Stella is caught up in the pursuit and becomes a target because of their friendship. Together, they must survive in an interconnected world where any machine might instantly become a lethal predator . . .' (Publisher's blurb)
