In a setting reminiscent of THE MATRIX and in the man-verses-science spirit of JURASSIC PARK, the players in this mystery and suspense techno thriller novel move between reality and virtuality, finding danger, death, and betrayal in both worlds.
What if a terrorist were a computer virus, its weapon a defect, and its target the U.S. military�? Welcome to the present, where the lines are blurred between terrorists and governments, virtual worlds and reality. In a war of information, everyone is on the frontline.
Steve Donovan, founder of NEXUS Corp, has developed a virtual technology that could help his daughter walk again. Riddled with guilt over the accident that crippled Brooke, Donovan buries himself in developing the Nexus. But when a young girl dies using the Nexus and a defect is discovered, NEXUS CEO Austin Wheeler decides lawsuits are cheaper than a recall. Exploiting the defect that triggers fatal seizures, a hacker introduces a deadly virus in the form of a virtual serial killer. Torn between his conscious and his invention, and distracted by a sexy federal investigator and a bottle of scotch, Donovan chases the killer through uncharted virtual worlds, where nothing is as it seems. He discovers a conspiracy that threatens U. S. security and Brooke�s life. As two superpowers face off in global confrontation, Donovan realizes that in order to stop the killer, he must break the TERMINAL CONNECTION.
