I read THE WILCO PROJECT by Dan Springer on my recent vacation, and it is a perfect read when you want an escape. It's a fast-paced, keep-the-pages-turning thriller with mystery, suspense, and romance rolled up in a completely believable dose of technology. The game that Steven Archer, dot-com millionaire turned academic, has invented is in its final testing phase. The craze for this game is sweeping the campus; students are clamoring to join in and try it out. But when one student, and then ano ...more

Archer can't believe how fast things are tumbling down after the discovery of a body, of a female student participating in the game trials. The evidence ...more

Shelves: suspense, thriller
The realistic descriptions kept my eyes glued to pages as I read with a voracious, gluttonous appetite, greedily devouring the words until, at last, reaching the thrilling conclusion, I was sated. Read More

I was really wanting to like this book because the mystery seemed very engaging. However, the problems with formatting just kept jolting me out of the story and hurt my head to the point that I just couldn't finish it.

Fairly boring mystery, I was pretty certain I knew who the killer was early on and my hunch was right on target. Interesting idea for a story but I always crave sneaky plot twists for this kind of tale, and I was a bit disappointed at that.
Dec 08, 2012 Keith rated it it was ok
About a third to half way through the book I figured out who the killer was. I didn't think the book was bad, but I only gave it two stars because I solved it too soon. I like it when I can't figure out the killer or killers as the case may be until the very end.

I enjoyed the book but figured out the killer early. Overall, a good mystery with realistic 21st century technology.

Interesting premise but it read too much like a first novel. It could have used a better editor.
