Heart stopper from start to finish. It's a good thing it's fiction.

An interesting plot that supposes we might be able copy a human psyche into a computer with quantum capabilities thus given the "person" god-like powers. Of course, whose psyche would you want to give that much power? It should make you ponder where all our technology is headed in the future. Enough suspense to keep things moving though there is little doubt as to who the bad guys are and who will save the world. I'd recommend it and as a New York Times Bestseller, a good many others would agree.

Greg Iles writes an intense tale, and The Footprints of God is as tightly wound as any. It is a "techno-thriller" that snares your interest and won't let you go until you've finished reading. You have to find out whether or not Mankind is obliterated. You're never quite sure... until the end.

This is really a book that is different. It makes you think.
It mixes computers, murder, & religion. It keeps you turning the pages & trying to figure out how it can have a "they lived happily ever after" ending.

From back of book, "In a secret government lab, America's top scientists work on Trinity, a supercomputer that could surpass the power of the human mind!

What ensues is murder and betrayal between all scientists involved as a mad power grab for control of Trinity. Great fast action!

I really liked this book and it was hard to put down, just a little let down at the end.

Both plot and characters drive this story. Programmers have been working to develop Artificial Intelligence for years -- the Terminator, Data from Startrek Next Generation, HAL from 2001: A Space Odyssey, War Games, and many other stories are based on AI. Is a thinking, reasoning computer plausible?

Greg Iles says 'Yes.' His technical writing will satisfy techno-junkies (such as I), yet not leave the novice confused. Each person that has a deep profile compiled has side effects, and Dr. David Tennant's narcoleptic dreams about an apocalyptic power are too real to be ignored. However, it is only his out-of-character activities that save his life and the woman he has grown to love.

This was an exceptionally well written book about a very scary subject. Not that I am a Luddite, but artificial intelligence if ever developed cold be the worst invention by man.

If you like Dan Brown, you'll love this one! I read the review in the front by Dan Brown and had to buy it. I was not disappointed. Before reading this one, Angels and Demons was my favorite...Footprints of God ranks right up there with it.

What if you could separate your conscious mind from your body? What if after your body died, you could continue to live on inside a computer? This is the premise of Mr. Iles's (who happens to live in my old hometown of Natchez, MS) novel, a techno-thriller. It was good, but it was really the last 100 pages that really kept me up at night. Mr. Iles does have great openings to his books, making you want to dive into his stories.
