Medical journalist Nate Idle has stumbled onto an extraordinary conspiracy and the ultimate mind game. Suddenly, in pursuit of the truth, he's running for his life through the shadows of Silicon Valley, a human lab animal caught in a deadly maze of neurotechnology and institutional paranoia. And his survival rests entirely in the hands of his eighty-five-year old grandmother, Lane, who?s suffering from dementia, and can't remember the secret at the heart of the world-changing conspiracy.

About the Author:

Matt Richtel is a Pulitzer-prize winning journalist, novelist and syndicated daily cartoonist. Since 2000, he has worked in the San Francisco bureau of the New York Times, writing about technology, how it impacts society, and how heavy use of gadgets changes how we live, work, and relate to each other. His recent series ?Your Brain On Computers,? has illuminated how technology use even changes how our brains are wired. His series about distracted driving won the 2010 Pulitzer Prize for National Reporting. He was a finalist in 2007 for the Gerald Loeb Award for coverage of the Hewlett-Packard spying scandal. He has also covered Internet gambling, identify theft, the Silicon Valley boom and bust, video games, mobile communications, and the business of pornography. His first novel, Hooked, was a critically-acclaimed bestseller and Booksense selection called by USA Today ?pure, heart-pounding escapism.? He also writes ?Rudy Park,? a daily comic strip that has been syndicated by United Media since 2001. The strip revolves around life at an Internet café. When not writing, Matt plays tennis and piano (though not well) on an upright piano that survived the bombing at Dresden. He lives in San Francisco with his wife, Meredith, and their son, Milo, and the couple is expecting a new addition, daughter, in Sept. 2010. Matt grew up Boulder, Co, and received his bachelors degree from Berkeley and a graduate degree in journalism from Columbia University.
