Book Review: “Dangerous Brains” by Erik Hamre

An incredibly gripping thriller! I read this book in record time because I just had to know how it was going to end.

Someone has created an artificial intelligence which is breaking through the firewalls of every electronic device on the planet. The U.S. government has in place a directive which says that if an intelligence breaks through the nuclear warhead control systems than a series of nuclear bombs attached to GPS satellites will be detonated in the atmosphere, creating an EMP wave which will knock out all electronics and send society backwards 200 years.

Kraut has assembled a team of experts to try and stop this new intelligence. As the clock ticks down to detonation of the bombs, will the team be able to find a way to destroy it? This story is full of twists and turns as the investigators undercover clues, hit dead ends, and continue to persist till the bitter end. One of the things that made the story so compelling is that it is set in 2015 and the technology portrayed is very realistic. The reader can easily imagine these events taking place in the not too distant future. This story is fun to read but also a wake-up call for Americans that technology may also have a very scary, dark side if not managed properly.

If you’re looking for a mystery, you will enjoy this book. If you’re a sci-fi fan, you will enjoy this book. I have previously read “Tuna Life” by the same author and I think this one surpasses it in its creativity. This is definitely a 5 star book.

Happy Reading!
