Many thanks to publisher Head of Zeus for my spot on this Blog Tour.

A fast paced, high octane thriller with a kick-ass protagonist who had a bullet which had rewired his brain and an AI which was wanted by the world over. What more could I want?

Somebody tried to murder Esme. Then her husband Tobias Hawke was murdered. The AI Syd went into the lockdown mode. What was the AI hiding? Esme’s uncle called North back to UK using threats to protect his niece. North and his 14-year-old hacker friend, Fang, get cracking.

My first book by author Judith O’Reilly captured my interest with North in the spotlight. I loved his entry into the country where death dogged his footsteps. Ably supported by his team, it was fun to run with him through all the action scenes. And there were plenty that peppered the pages of the book.

Twists were many, and I was shocked by the reveal, most unexpected, the author wrote this book with a pen dipped in adrenaline, making her main character think on his toes. Not a moment was wasted.

I loved Fang, a genius brat, she captured my heart with her wisecracks along with her knowledge. Her love for North was well evident even when she called him a moron-person. Overall, a fun action thriller, well recommended for fans of this genre.

I received a free ARC from NetGalley and the publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

Tobias Hawke was the tech genius boss of the British Institute for Deep Learning. Now his body has been found in his lab: he has been brutally murdered.

Hawke was on the brink of an astonishing breakthrough in the field of Artificial Intelligence. His creation, ‘Syd’, a machine-learning device that mimics human thought, promised to change the face of humanity forever. But, in the wake of her creator’s murder, Syd has gone into emergency shutdown procedure. What secrets are her neural networks hiding?

Michael North, ex-assassin and spy-for-hire, is the man to find out. But he can’t work alone. Teenage hacker Fangfang, and Hawke’s widow, a prize-winning ethicist, have their own reasons to solve the murder. But can they uncover the truth before it’s too late?
