9780099594314: Gridiron

Los Angeles, 1988

Ray Richardson, a brilliant architechnologist, has created a dazzling new building: 'The Gridiron', in the heart of L. A.

The Gridiron represents the state-of-the-art in smart buildings: every aspect of the building, from temperature control to security, is controlled by an intricate computer system. On the eve of the building's official opening, a team gathers to put the finishing touches to Ray's new masterpiece. But there are a couple of unexplained deaths, which the team at first puts down to saboteurs. It is only when they discover how bizarre these deaths are that they realise the building - through its computer - is controlling them, and is set to destroy its creators.

Review:

"England's answer to Michael Crichton" ( Financial Times)

"I loved Gridiron. It is truly original disaster novel with a theme that is awesome" (Ruth Rendell)

"Brilliant thriller about a computerised building that turns into a killing machine" ( Independent)

"Kerr paces the action, teases and controls... The novel is all the more powerful for being close enough to contemporary truth for this skillful writer to engender a real sense of horror... Severely frightening" (Frances Fyfield Daily Telegraph)

"Ingeniously gruesome... I found myself turning the pages in feverish anticipation" ( The Times)

Book Description:

A Sunday Times bestseller, Gridiron is a dazzling thriller set in LA from 'England's answer to Michael Crichton' ( Financial Times)
