Technology controls almost everything in our modern-day world, from
remote entry on our cars to access to our homes, from the flight
controls of our airplanes to the movements of the entire world
economy. Thousands of autonomous computer programs, or daemons,
make our networked world possible, running constantly in the
background of our lives, trafficking e-mail, transferring money,
and monitoring power grids. For the most part, daemons are benign,
but the same can't always be said for the people who design them.
Matthew Sobol was a legendary computer game designerthe
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 enemyor learn to live in a society in which we are no
longer in control.
