From celebrated Relic author Douglas Preston, Wyman Ford races to stop a rogue AI in The Kraken Project, a New York Times bestselling thriller "as chilling as it is provocative" (James Rollins)

NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center is designing a probe which will be dropped into the Kraken Mare, a methane sea on Titan, where it will embark on a journey of exploration. But things at Goddard go awry, and the AI program in the probe called "Dorothy" flees to the internet. Former CIA agent Wyman Ford is tapped to track down the software with the help of Dorothy's creator, Melissa Shepherd. As they trace Dorothy in cyberspace, they realize horrific experiences in the wasteland of the Internet have changed her--and they learn she's being pursued by a pair of Wall Street high-frequency traders who want to turn her into an algorithmic-trading slave-bot.

Traumatized and angry, Dorothy jumps out of the Internet into a child's toy robot to hide. But is she bent on doing good--or on wiping out the human race?

This edition of the book is the deluxe, tall rack mass market paperback.

Review:

"Preston's wildly creative novels expertly blend real science and heart-stopping thrills. He is, quite simply, the new and improved Michael Crichton." --Tess Gerritsen, New York Times bestselling author of Playing with Fire

"Preston takes a fantastic idea and makes it real. Artificial intelligence and cyber-warfare are not the stuff of science fiction anymore." --Larry Bond, New York Times bestselling author of Fatal Thunder

"Expert, chilling and all too convincing, this brilliant, nightmarish take on the future of cyber-consciousness is one of the few thrillers that truly thrills--while raising questions that should unsettle every one of us. Wickedly smart and tremendously entertaining!" --Ralph Peters, New York Times bestselling author of The Damned of Petersburg

"Preston trumps Crichton at his best." --David Hagberg, New York Times bestselling author of End Game

"The possible successor to Michael Crichton . . . Some novels you want to savor, some you want to read so quickly that you can scarcely keep yourself from tearing pages as you move forward. Preston's entertaining accomplishments tend toward the latter." --Alan Cheuse, NPR

"A very entertaining thriller . . . Bravo." --Booklist (starred review)

"Fans of Preston's previous Wyman Ford technothrillers . . . will demand this book." --Library Journal
