It's the future. Jordan O'Blenis may be a genius when it comes to computers, but with spies after his sister Cassie's research in UAVs and artificial intelli-gence, he needs all the help he can get to keep her safe and save BWB Aero-space's top secret drone project. Luckily for Jordan, he has Helen the frog expert and Cassandra, the sentient supercomputer programme he created, on his side. The problem is, Helen thinks kidnapping and interrogating a government agent is a perfectly logical solution to their problems, while Cassandra has developed a bad case of ethics. When old enemies snatch Jordan, though, it's up to Cassan-dra to save the day, even if that means hijacking BWB's multi-million dollar UAV system. It's just borrowing, really...… (mer)

Jordan O'Blenis is worried about his sister, Cassie. They've always been close, even more so since their last adventure. But lately she hasn't been answering her phone or responding to emails. Sure, she's busy. Top secret government projects can keep a person pretty occupied. Jordan knows his sister though, and he's pretty sure there's something else going on. Jordan and Helen, his partner in crime, are determined to find out what that is. And they'll have to do it in person, since Cassandra, Jordan's "super virus," has suddenly acquired an interest in ethical behavior. Off they go to surprise Cassie, and do a little investigating.

It's not long before they uncover a stalker, and their old friends the Harvey's from Bureau 6, as well as some new faces from Bureau 7. (B6 and B7 are kind of like the Canadian FBI and CIA.) Cassie's definitely in trouble. Now what? How do a child computer genius and a child biology genius compete with covert government operatives? Even with the help of conspiracy theorist Jack, their old friend and now Cassie's boyfriend, this could be a bit much. And definitely dangerous.

This book is a non-stop adventure; once it gets going there is rarely a pause. If you liked THE CASSANDRA VIRUS, this is a great continuation of where that book left off. If you haven't read that one, I highly recommend it, both because it's very good and because this book may be hard to get into otherwise. There isn't a whole lot of discussion of past events; the author assumes you know the characters and their past, which I actually really liked.

I've read a few books by K.V Johansen now, and I really like the way she writes. Everything is very intelligent, but never condescending. Sure, there's some technical stuff that I didn't quite get, not being a computer genius, but I never felt bad or dumb for not knowing. And it never took anything away from the story.

I also liked that Jordan, Helen, and Cassie are geniuses but still socially adept. Well, mostly. Kidnapping and interrogation are always difficult the first time. It's a very fun, often funny, intelligent read. I highly recommend it. ( )

"Johansen's characters are both believable and likeable—this is largely due to Johansen's knack for great dialogue... Science-fiction lovers as well as those interested in computers, technology and artificial intelligence are sure to enjoy this novel."
