Publisher Description

New York Times bestselling author Daniel Suarez imagines a chilling future where technological advances are held hostage by the government in this thriller that perfectly blends “nail-biting suspense with accessible science” (Publishers Weekly).

Physicist Jon Grady and his team have discovered a device that can reflect gravity—a triumph that will revolutionize the field of physics and change the future. But instead of acclaim, Grady’s lab is locked down by a covert organization known as the Bureau of Technology Control.

The bureau’s mission: suppress the truth of sudden technological progress and prevent the social upheaval it would trigger. Because the future is already here. And it’s rewards are only for a select few.

When Grady refuses to join the BTC, he’s thrown into a nightmarish high-tech prison housing other doomed rebel intellects. Now, as the only hope to usher humanity out of its artificial dark age, Grady and his fellow prisoners must try to expose the secrets of an unimaginable enemy—one that wields a technological advantage half a century in the making.

The Boogster ,

Outstanding!!

I picked up Daemon some years ago, when it was just published in paperback because the cover notes interested me. Thank God I did! I couldn't wait to read Freedom and have haunted the websites, bookstores and iBooks ever since, waiting for the newest release of Daniel Suarez.
Influx keeps the tradition alive with science, technology, philosophy, government, human foibles and weaknesses and the strength and dignity of mankind.
Read Influx, you'll love it. Then re-read Kill Decision, Daemon and Freedom slowly and maybe, if we are all very lucky, the next one will be right around the corner.
We've lost Mr Clancy but a truly worthy successor is alive and well in Mr Suarez and, like all true successors, he has moved beyond the paths left by his predecessors.
Keep up the good work! Thank you!

Solid

Solid book- first I'd read of Daniel Suarez. Definitely in the Michael Crichton Technical Thriller genre. Highlights include a plausible future state technical premise (surrounding Gravity Waves) with a slight detraction (not uncommon to authors) related to "chatty" plot building (aka plot advances found in character dialogue), etc.

My biggest grievance with the book? How altogether doltish the arch-antagonist is. Without giving away plot points, I couldn't strike the vision that the arch-antagonis was, in fact, Mandark- from Dexter's Laboratory- fully grown. Everything about his unnuanced personality struck me as off, given his position within the BTC.

That's unfortunate as the first portions- including the time spent in prison- were all 5 star.

100% would recommend!

This book is very well written and the concept is incredibly interesting. If you're interested in science and technology, this book will definitely keep you hooked.
