Different type of mystery/thriller. Architects build a smart building and then the computer controlled building begins to kill them. Not the usual mystery. Interesting.

I enjoyed this one! It started off a little slow and took me a bit to really get into it, but once it got started after laying the groundwork it is a fun read.

This is a gruesome tale of a "smart" building that goes beserk. The newly built building is maintained 100% by Abraham, a computer which learns as it experiences various things. The office building isn't ready for habitation yet and the designers and computer engineering team is caught in the building when people start dying under suspicious circumstances. The action really rachets up when the computer locks down the building and starts picking off the team members. A hi-tech nightmare that may come to pass...someday soon. I enjoyed the story and liked the ending.
