From Wall Street Journal bestselling author Richard Bard comes the next highly anticipated Brainrush thriller, a mind-gripping action adventure that spans three continents, and two books: Everlast and Ephemeral.
A gifted boy forced to grow up too fast... A father who will do anything to protect him... A madman bent on destroying them both.
In Amsterdam, a visionary scientist is laying the groundwork for a cybernetic life-extension project that will transfer individual consciousness to a personalized avatar. Halfway around the world, his brilliant grandson is secretly planning to use the same technology to infiltrate the world’s most secure networks. But the scientific advances necessary to perfect the brain-to-computer interface are slow in coming, too slow for the aging founder of the Everlast foundation - who may die before realizing his dream of immortality - and too slow for his ruthless grandson, who will stop at nothing to attain the recognition that is his birthright.
Caught in the middle are Jake Bronson and his seven-year-old son, Alex, whose combined mental gifts might provide the key to leapfrogging the impasse.
