Publisher Description

Daniel Suarez’s New York Times bestselling debut high-tech thriller is “so frightening even the government has taken note” (Entertainment Weekly).

Daemons: computer programs that silently run in the background, waiting for a specific event or time to execute. They power almost every service. They make our networked world possible. But they also make it vulnerable...
 
When the obituary of legendary computer game architect Matthew Sobol appears online, a previously dormant daemon activates, initiating a chain of events that begins to unravel our interconnected world. This daemon reads news headlines, recruits human followers, and orders assassinations. With Sobol’s secrets buried with him, and as new layers of his daemon are unleashed, it’s up to Detective Peter Sebeck to stop a self-replicating virtual killer before it achieves its ultimate purpose—one that goes far beyond anything Sebeck could have imagined...

This is book ONE of a two book series!

Excellent book!! The target audience for this is definitely gamers, computer programmers, and techies but anyone who likes a fast paced action thriller will enjoy this.

Please keep in mind that this is a two book series. After you finish reading Daemon, go pick up Freedom-TM for the conclusion!

Favorite sci-fi novel of all time

I’m a sci-fi junkie. This is my favorite novel. Creative use of tech, spooky predictive elements (although perhaps outdated now), excellent character development, brilliant human + tech evolution.

Sharp writing

Story moves very quickly, hard to put it down. Great characters. Suarez is brilliant.
