Influx by Daniel Suarez
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

A science-heavy text with a US Government department set up to monitor new developments in technology, the BTC. It goes rogue and starts taking out anyone who makes a significant step forward in science. Why? Our hero, Grady, invents anti-gravity and becomes too valuable to BTC to kill for they need one more insight from him in order to complete their plans for world domination and so the real action begins. As with all good science fiction you are left with the thought that this technology could well exist.

If you like Daniel Suarez you might also like to read books by Bill Napier, Michael Crichton and Andy Weir.

Synopsis

Influx by Daniel Suarez

Change is dangerous, technology lethal. So what if our civilization is more advanced than we know? Particle physicist Jon Grady is ecstatic when his team achieves a major breakthrough: a device that can reflect gravity. Their research will revolutionise the field of physics. But at Grady's moment of triumph, his lab is locked down by a shadowy organisation whose mission is to prevent the social upheaval caused by sudden technological advances - advances they use to retain total command. They are living in the future we were promised. Now Grady finds himself in a nightmarish high-tech prison built to hold other rebellious geniuses. Can he and his fellow prisoners escape? And even if they can, is it possible to defeat an enemy that wields a technological advantage half a century in the making? The dark ages are ending. Our future is here...

'Rockets along ... fun tech-fiction wrapped in black helicopter conspiracy Kirkus With this terrifying thriller, Suarez provides further support that he's a worthy successor to the late Michael Crichton' Publishers Weekly

'With Influx, Suarez becomes the master, and Crichton is the one who is honored by the comparison' Scientific American

'Full of breathtaking scenes' The New York Journal of Books
