Mitchell Swain is the richest man in the world--until he announces the "ultimate technological breakthrough." The world stops for the press conference-and sees him assassinated. No one knows what he was going to say.Almost no one. Jennifer Rayne intends to find out. A leading journalist covering high-tech, she was scheduled to interview Swain after the press conference. Instead, she investigates his murder. What she finds is a scientist to whom Swain has funneled billions... A desperate U.S. government following the same clues... And a bizarre technology which promises invincibility, immortality, and the ability to destroy any enemy--or the earth itself. Mankind has entered the final arms race. It will last two days. As this breathlessly fast-paced nanothriller unfolds, readers are taken on a stunning tour de force of nanotechnology's promises and perils--until the fate of the earth itself hangs in the balance... * Winner of Nanotechnology Now's Editor's Choice Award *
