From the Publisher

A chilling cyberthriller about a brilliant--and beautiful-- psychologist trapped in a web of futuristic terror.

When Dr. Laura Aldridge, a young Harvard psychology professor, is offered one million dollars by billionaire computer-genius and inventor Joseph Gray to assist on a mysterious project, she leaves her comfortable existence to live on his beautiful island in the South Pacific. The centerpiece of his world empire is a massive, artificially intelligent neurocomputer buried deep under the island. Its life has grown troubled and Laura must psychoanalyze and cure Gray's all-too-human computer before its malfunctions lead to global catastrophe. What she learns is information that some men--and governments--would kill to keep from being exposed.
