We all keep secrets, but what if someone wasn't just stealing our secrets but changing them . . . and our brains?
Journalist Nat Idle is nearly gunned down in Golden Gate Park. He quickly learns it was no random attack. Suddenly, in pursuit of the truth, he's running for his life through the shadows of Silicon Valley, a human lab animal caught in a deadly maze of neurotechnology and institutional paranoia. And his survival rests entirely in the hands of his eighty-five-year-old grandmother, Lane, who's suffering from dementia and can't remember the secret at the heart of the world-changing conspiracy.
Author, technology reporter, Pulitzer Prize winner, Matt Richtel has dreamed up an exquisite nightmare firmly grounded in true science. The future is now, the possibilities endless . . . and positively terrifying.

A must download!
This author has the ability to take subject matters that might seem dry or boring and weave them into fast paced, page turning mysteries. I read this book in two sittings & am going to download the sequel. Don't miss out on the chance to read this while free but if you do, then buy it. You won't be disappointed!
Outstanding, Well Devised & Delivered, Masterpiece!
I obtained this novel compliments of Apple's book of the week, thinking that it might be a good filler to be read here and there. I was pleasantly surprised to find that I could not put the book down once I began reading. The main character (narrator) tells the story using superb prose and thought provoking detail, making the reader feel a pseudo-connection to his persona. Clearly, the blood relation that is a core component of the character makeup in this story stands of its own accord; heartfelt and realistic in all regards. The plot is one that is sensible, contained, and does not deviate throughout the narrative. The story builds upon itself with a forward momentum that is steady paced and sensible. At no point in the story did I feel lost, disconnected, or removed from the focus of the narrative. I will not write a spoiler review for those who have not read the book, so I will leave you with this thought, "read the book, folks, you will NOT be disappointed; rather you will be scrambling to obtain all the other books relevant to the Idle escapades." I have already began the first book, and I have already purchased all the others; YES this book opened the doorway. Thank you, sir, for a wonderful reading experience! Cheers
Fast paced, yet thoughtful... Provocative and entertaining. Matt Richtel delineates our times with care and concern. A very enjoyable read.
