it was amazing

Dr. David Tennant, professor of ethics at the University of Virginia Medical School, is also employed by the US government on the top secret Project Trinity. It is chartered to build a super computer designed to harness human intellect by downloading the minds of some of the most brilliant men in the world. When Tennant begins to see some of his colleagues exhibit neurological trauma, he shifts into the role of investigator. Not a popular choice when he is having his own psychological issues, his best friend dies (or is he murdered) and the men behind the project see this as a means to grant them immortality as their minds will live on long after their death. This will make them like God.

In typical Iles' style, this thriller is non-stop action. Tennant's frantic race to discover how his friend died, what is going on in his own brain, will his psychiatrist fall in love with him or commit him to the nearest mental hospital, can he dodge all the bullets with his name on them, and outwit one of the most powerful and beautiful female villains Iles has created. And, wondering if can he do this before the computer goes on online will keep the reader up at night.

A great read. As a writer of suspense and thrillers I would put this one near the top of the stack. Iles is at the top of his game in "The Footprints of God."
