Daniel Suarez serves up a blistering new novel about the future (and somewhat unfriendly) interaction between human beings and sentient software.  You may now order at your leisure.

“Matthew Sobol was a legendary computer game designer-the architect behind half-a-dozen popular online games. His premature death depressed both gamers and his company’s stock price. But Sobol’s fans aren’t the only ones to note his passing. When his obituary is posted online, a previously dormant daemon activates, initiating a chain of events intended to unravel the fabric of our hyper-efficient, interconnected world. With Sobol’s secrets buried along with him, and as new layers of his daemon are unleashed at every turn, it’s up to an unlikely alliance to decipher his intricate plans and wrest the world from the grasp of a nameless, faceless enemy-or learn to live in a society in which we are no longer in control.”

An avid gamer and technologist, Daniel Suarez (aka Leinad Zeraus) is a senior IT consultant to Fortune 1000 companies. He has designed enterprise software for the defense, finance, and entertainment industries. Daemon is his first novel.
