Publisher's Summary

A blockbuster new thriller from number one New York Times best-selling author Lincoln Child, centered on a dominant tech company — Chrysalis — whose groundbreaking virtual reality technology is redefining the way we live...and possibly introducing a catastrophic danger to the world.

Like millions of people around the world, Jeremy Logan (famed enigmalogist, or investigator of unexplained things) has grown to rely on his incredible new tech device. Made by Chrysalis, the global multibillion dollar tech company, the small optical device connects people in a stunning new way, tapping into virtual reality for the first time on a wide scale.

And yet, when Logan is summoned by Chrysalis to investigate a disturbing anomaly in the massive new product rollout, Logan is shocked to see the true scope of the massive company. He also quickly realizes that something in Chrysalis’s technology is very wrong, and could be potentially devastating. The question is what, and where, is the danger coming from? In Lincoln Child’s wildly inventive new novel, high tech comes to life alongside the myriad dangers it poses, making for one of Child’s most infectious, entertaining thrillers to date.

Jeremy Logan returns

This latest Jeremy Logan thriller has him hired by a cutting edge tech firm that is pushing the limits of virtual reality to new frontiers. Jeremy has faced ancient puzzles and lost technology before, but never has he stepped this far toward the future. As with all of these stories, the technology is only very slightly beyond what we have today. I honestly expect something similar to be a reality within the next decade. Hopefully without the story required intrigues and associated deaths. The author paints, what I am convinced is a pretty accurate view of what we can expect.

I have seen other reviews that stated that they were overwhelmed by the technology described and had some difficulty following the story. I didn't have that issue and, while some was a bit beyond my technical expertise, I found the gist of what was going on to be very clear and understandable.

There is some bad language, but within reasonable amounts. No sex. A fair amount of violence, but less than one might expect from a thriller. The deaths are treated appropriately and not as simple cannon fodder as many other thrillers do. There is a gravitas to the lives lost which, in the hands of this very capable writer, are made to mean something.

I honestly believe this book to be the best in the series so far. I highly recommend it.

PS... Unlike many series, you can enjoy this one as a stand alone without having to have read the previous books. But then, you would miss out on those great stories.

Another hit for Jeremy Logan!!

Lincoln Child and Douglas Preston (although not writing together on this novel) never disappoint. This is another great adventure thriller to add to the Jeremy Logan collection.

Help! Will this book ever end?

I struggled to finish this book, and I normally love Lincoln Child's novels! I kept waiting for it to get better, and it just never did! Too much tech and not enough action for me. Really hate that I wasted a credit on this one.

Fantasmagorical

Another fantastic storyline although a bit too close to home. Reminds me of of a few movies that I've seen and could relate this book to. Hope we don't need to wait too long for another Logan investigation. Narration was fantastic
