Description

The advent of Webmind--a vast consciousness that spontaneously emerged from the infrastructure of the World Wide Web--is changing everything. From curing cancer to easing international tensions, Webmind seems a boon to humanity.

But Colonel Peyton Hume, the Pentagon's top expert on artificial intelligence, is convinced Webmind is a threat. He turns to the hacker underground to help him bring Webmind down. But soon hackers start mysteriously vanishing. Is Webmind killing them before they can mount an attack?

Caitlin Decter--the once-blind sixteen-year-old math genius who discovered Webmind--desperately tries to protect her friend. Can this new world of wonder survive, or will everything, Webmind included, come crashing down?
