Took me a little bit to get into this story, but once it started moving (about halfway through) it was really great. The descriptions creating anticipation of confrontations made for good listening in the car :) ( )

Unlike most thrillers I read this one does not start with hundred's question marks on what exactly is going on. Event that will drive the plot are given in first couple of chapters - young married couple Jason and Sydney Archer, IT engineer and successful lawyer respectively, both working for huge international mega-corporation aiming to acquire the pioneer AI company in order to create the portfolio that will enable them full monopoly in the field of software and hardware development. From the very beginning it is visible that Jason is working on something secret but not to the very end is the reader aware of what is truly going on. Then we have a huge disaster where hundreds are killed and no-one knows why exactly. What seems like a reasonable premise soon is discarded when new facts come to light.

Book is full of twists (main antagonists do not hesitate to bring down the entire commercial airplane to further their agenda) and concerns that ring true even 23 years after the book was published - mass surveillance, personal data collection and use of AI to control the populace. All the reasons for ruthless businessmen to do whatever it takes to gain the power and money. What I like about the book is that although high financial and technology world is constantly in the front, actual reasons for crime are as mundane as they can be.

Some would say that characters are bland and I would say they are your standard off-the-mill thriller characters, especially police officers (i.e. grizzled old veteran with problems in family). Our main protagonists are not stranded in financial issues and they all work in rather prestigious companies, they are loyal to each other and work hard to figure out what is going on. Point here is that you need to read the book to the end to figure out what is happening - trust me even if you read half the book there is great chance you are on a wrong trail. If you are prone to building views of others on incomplete data then you will find characters in the book rather difficult to root for. But when you get to the end of the book a lot of things get clear and true criminals are exposed.

Interesting book. Recommended to all fans of thrillers. ( )

FROM AMAZON: When her husband mysteriously disappears in a plane crash into the Virginia countryside, a devastated wife must sort out truth from lies in this pause-resisting New York Times best seller.

Jason Archer is a rising young executive at Triton Global, the world's leading technology conglomerate. Determined to give his family the best of everything, Archer has secretly entered into a deadly game. He is about to disappear - leaving behind a wife who must sort out his lies from his truths, an accident team that wants to know why the plane he was ticketed on crashed, and a veteran FBI agent who wants to know it all.
