Inhaltsangabe: A beautiful young girl living in Oxford finds herself battling against a personal tragedy whilst also proving her professional brilliance. For she is on the forefront of the research into artificial intelligence. Meanwhile on the Internet, a serial killer is quietly stalking her.
Rezension: Previous thrillers about computers becoming supersmart and running wild have usually fallen flat because of a lack of plausibility and/or humanity. But British writer Ambrose has managed to avoid all the pitfalls in this truly terrifying story of what happens when a serial killer who uses the Internet to stalk his victims meets an amoral artificial intelligence program with a deadly learning curve. Since the murderer started his career with his own mother, the computer program (called Fred) thinks it only logical that he should now help Fred kill Tessa Lambert, the Oxford scientist who gave birth to him. Freud's remark about an angry baby being the most dangerous thing in the world takes on a frightening new dimension, as digital Fred and his human crony evade the best brains of law and science in their determined attempt to erase Tessa.
