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.

A tense thriller that I enjoyed from start to finish. Two people on the run, they can trust no one, including (especially) the US government. Murder, a top secret project that threatens the world, a touch of scifi, and even some romance. If you like 24, the TV show, you'll like this book.

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.

Lovely imaginative read for any computer geeks and lovers of mystery novels. He asks some important questions to ponder and leaves us with crossed fingers hoping our fears don't come true.
