A device that connects your brain directly to everything cyberspace has to offer - what could possibly go wrong?

John Talbot leads a team of scientists that has developed an 'interface' - a micro device that connects the brain directly to a computer and the world beyond, opening up endless commercial possibilities. John arrives at work to news that a key team member has died in a plane crash, just weeks before their exciting technology is demonstrated publicly for the first time. What once had the potential to make the team wealthy beyond belief now threatens the company with bankruptcy.

At the eleventh hour, an offer from the U.S. army to invest in the technology enables it to proceed to the final trial before commercialisation, but many question the army's motives.

Phase one of the trial shows amazing promise, albeit with a few hiccups, but phase two is delayed when another team member - Mac Patterson - seemingly loses his mind and goes missing.

Time becomes the true enemy as John must lead the search to find Mac in order to save his friend's life and the technology's potential, risking his own sanity in the process. But what is he missing as he is confronted with one obstacle after another?

About the Author

Richard Jagger was born in Shepparton, Victoria, and grew up in a bayside suburb of Melbourne, Australia. His education includes degrees in Science and International Business.

Richard has worked in the adolescent biotech industry for over ten years, employed by the world's most prominent plant biotechnology company. After twenty-five years of Fortune 500 company experience - living in Australia and the United States - he has witnessed the various politics and agendas of the corporate world. His work has taken him around the globe, and exposed him to research and commercialisation of biotechnology and chemistry in the world's major food and fibre crops. He led the commercialisation team of the first genetically modified crop (cotton) approved in Australia, and is currently working for one of China's largest firms as it begins business in Australia and New Zealand.

Richard also works as a professional photographer, and enjoys sailing, surfing, painting and travel. With his wife and their black Labrador, he divides his time between Melbourne and the Mornington Peninsula.

This is Richard's second Novel, after "The Cure".
