Description

Particle physicist Jon Grady is ecstatic when his team achieves what they've been working toward for years: a device that can reflect gravity. Grady expects widespread acclaim for his entire team. Instead, his lab is locked down by a shadowy organization whose mission is to prevent at all costs the social upheval sudden technological advances bring. This Bureau of Technology Control uses the advanced technologies they have harvested over the decades to fulfill their mission. Presented with the opportunity to join the BTC, Grady balks, and is instead thrown into a nightmarish high-tech prison built to hold rebellious geniuses like himself. With so many great intellects confined together, can Grady and his fellow prisoners conceive of a way to usher humanity out of its its artificial dark age?

        Starred review from December 16, 2013
        With this terrifying thriller, Suarez (Kill Decision) provides further support for the proposition that he’s a worthy successor to the late Michael Crichton. Scientist Jon Grady and his colleagues have just invented a device that can reflect gravity, a major breakthrough that has the potential to revolutionize physics. But Grady’s moment of triumph is short-lived. A Luddite terrorist, Richard Cotton (whose group is winningly described as “a branch of militant Amish who had settled on the mid-1980s as their permissible technological level”), captures Grady’s team and sets off explosives to destroy them and their creation. To Grady’s surprise, he survives the blast, only to find himself in the clutches of a seemingly omniscient U.S. government agency, the Federal Bureau of Technology Control, which monitors innovations and assesses their “social, political, environmental and economic impacts with the goal of preserving social order.” That brief requires the BTC to suppress advances, like the gravity reflector, for what it perceives as the greater good. Suarez once again mixes science and fiction perfectly. Agent: Raphael Sagalyn, Raphael Sagalyn Inc.
