From Douglas E. Richards, the NY Times bestselling author considered by many to be the heir to Michael Crichton: a riveting new techno-thriller: Mind’s Eye
“Richards is a tremendous new talent.” Stephen Coonts, 17-time New York Times bestselling author of Pirate Alley
San Diego, CA – Douglas E. Richards has released his newest techno-thriller, Mind’s Eye.
When Nick Hall wakes up in a dumpster – bloodied, without a memory, and hearing voices in his head—he knows things are bad. But they’re about to get far worse. Because he’s being hunted by a team of relentless assassins. Soon Hall discovers that advanced electronics have been implanted in his brain, and he now has two astonishing abilities. He can surf the web using thoughts alone. And he can read minds. But who inserted the implants? And why? And why is someone so desperate to kill him?
As Hall races to find answers, he comes to learn that far more is at stake than just his life. Because his actions can either catapult civilization to new heights—or bring about its total collapse.
Extrapolated from actual research on thought-controlled web surfing, Mind’s Eye is a smart, roller-coaster ride of a thriller. One that raises a number of intriguing, and sometimes chilling, possibilities about a future that is just around the corner.
“Recalls the best of Michael Crichton. A keep-you-up-all-night thriller. Intense action, mind-blowing concepts, & breathtaking twists. Enjoy the ride.” — Boyd Morrison, bestselling author of The Vault, on WIRED.
“Will keep you turning the pages all night long.” — Douglas Preston, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author of Impact, on The Cure.
