Book Review: Peacemaker

Some of you may remember my reveiew of Unholy Domain by Dan Ronco. I’ve since had an opportunity to read the prequel to this fine tome. Peacemaker is another fast paced techno-thriller detailing the epic struggle between good and evil, though things aren’t really so black and white. In a world ruled by technology, he who has the ability to stop the flow of data has the power to bring down the entire house of cards. With gritty real world lingo and believable characters, Mr. Ronco gives us a glimpse into the not so distant future and his vision is as frightening as it is vivid. The story will suck you in and refuse to let you go until you’ve turned the last page. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good thriller.

Software expert Ray Brown is plunged into a life-or-death contest with PeaceMaker, a deadly artificial intelligence that has infected most of the world's computing devices. His determination to eliminate PeaceMaker leads him into a dangerous conflict with the Domain, a clandestine organization dedicated to a new world order.Humiliated by the federal government in an anti-trust trial that has torn apart her software company, CEO Dianne Morgan is obsessed with a plan to unleash PeaceMaker and shut down computer systems across the world. She is determined to crush the global economy unless the nations of the world agree to share power with the Domain. Although Dianne and Ray have never resolved a long simmering passion, she must hunt him down before he terminates PeaceMaker. As the Domain hunts Ray, Dianne learns of a mysterious third force that has discovered PeaceMaker and plans to attack the Domain. Dianne, Ray and this third force struggle for control, but PeaceMaker has its own plans.

Sounds like a great fast paced read! It is reminding me of a movie where the computers try to take charge of the world. I am forgetting its name right now!
