Description

The propulsive, shockingly plausible sequel to "New York Times" bestseller "Daemon," the "Greatest. Techno-thriller. Period."* *William O'Brien, former director of cybersecurity and communications systems policy at the White House 2009 saw one of the most inventive techno-thriller debuts in decades as Daniel Suarez introduced his terrifying and tantalizing vision of a new world order. "Daemon" captured the attention of the tech community, became a national bestseller, garnered attention from futurists, literary critics, and the halls of government-leaving readers clamoring for the conclusion to Suarez's epic story. In the opening chapters of "Freedom(tm)," the Daemon is well on its way toward firm control of the modern world, using an expanded network of real-world, dispossessed darknet operatives to tear apart civilization and rebuild it anew. Civil war breaks out in the American Midwest, with the mainstream media stoking public fear in the face of this 'Corn Rebellion'. Former detective Pete Sebeck, now the Daemon's most famous and most reluctant operative, must lead a small band of enlightened humans in a populist movement designed to protect the new world order. But the private armies of global business are preparing to crush the Daemon once and for all. In a world of conflicted loyalties, rapidly diminishing government control, and a new choice between free will and the continuing comforts of ignorance, the stakes could not be higher: hanging in the balance is nothing less than democracy's last hope to survive the technology revolution.show more

Review quote

Praise for "Daemon" "This is a techno-thriller with a healthy dose of techno but absolutely no letdown on the thrill." -Slashdot ""Daemon" does for surfing the Web what "Jaws" did for swimming in the ocean." -"Chicago Sun-Times" "Riveting...for anyone who appreciates thrills, chills, and cyber- suspense...Will leave readers anxiously awaiting the promised sequel." -"Publishers Weekly" ""Daemon" is the real deal--a scary look at what can go wrong as we depend increasingly on computer networks." -Craig Newmark, founder of Craigslist ""Daemon" is to novels what "The Matrix" was to movies. It will be how other novels that rely on technology will be judged." -Rick Klau, vice president of FeedBurnershow more
