Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

*Starred Review* Jon Grady, a mostly self-taught particle physicist, is on the verge of perfecting an invention that will change the world when a group of radical terrorists break into his lab, destroy the place, and kill everyone within—except not really. Grady isn’t killed; instead he’s spirited off to the top-secret headquarters of the Bureau of Technology Control (BTC), a clandestine U.S. government department devoted to identifying and controlling new technologies. The BTC offers Grady the opportunity to work for them, developing his ideas for the benefit of the BTC, but Grady refuses—and is promptly whisked away to a BTC prison, where an artificial-intelligence inquisitor inflicts a variety of tortures on him, trying to force his cooperation. And that’s just the beginning, the set-up, really, of this high-flying (literally) sf adventure. Further story developments should probably be left to the author to reveal—let’s just say readers familiar with The Count of Monte Cristo will spot some key thematic similarities, and the book’s denouement involves some of the most imaginative plot contrivances you’re likely to encounter. But it is safe to say that the book is extremely well crafted. The characters (even the not-strictly-human ones) are vivid, the pacing is perfect, the villain is capital-E evil, and the author’s near-future world is so well developed that you completely buy even his wildest speculations. A tour de force of speculative fiction. --David Pitt

Review

Praise for Influx

"You'll hear a lot of reviewers compare Suarez to [Michael] Crichton, including me for his previous book Kill Decision. And Suarez deserved the honor in the truest sense...he had achieved a truly Crichton-level of storytelling. But with Influx, Suarez becomes the master, and Crichton is the one who is honored by the comparison." - Stephen L. Macknik, Scientific American
 
"[Influx is] done with the dazzling sophistication, the play of ideas, the hints of a new understanding almost within our grasp that characterize sci-fi in the cybertronic age." - The Wall Street Journal

“With this terrifying thriller, Suarez provides further support for the proposition that he’s a worthy successor to the late Michael Crichton… Suarez once again mixes science and fiction perfectly.”
Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“The characters (even the not-strictly-human ones) are vivid, the pacing is perfect, the villain is capital-E evil, and the author’s near-future world is so well developed that you completely buy even his wildest speculations. A magnificent tour de force.”
Booklist

"Influx is dark...it's fun...and it's a thinker. Just what I've come to expect from Daniel Suarez." - Geek Dad

"Influx as a whole is riveting. Fans of science fiction and thrillers will enjoy this engrossing combination of both genres." - ShelfAwareness

"It's a delicate balance, but one that Suarez manages with the skill and audacity of Philippe Petit. Don't know that name? Petit is the only tightrope walker ever to cross between the Twin Towers. Like the daring Frenchman, Suarez goes higher and takes bigger risks than many of his contemporaries or predecessors. It's a technique which allows and enables his work to stand out." - SF Site

Praise for Daniel Suarez:

“This is the kind of mind-expanding novel that uses entertainment to make powerful, important points about alarming current trends; the novel as cautionary tale has rarely been better executed. . . . Highly recommended.”
—Tim O’Reilly on Kill Decision

“Perfectly blending nail-biting suspense with accessible science, bestseller Suarez (Daemon) establishes himself as a legitimate heir to Michael Crichton with this gripping present-day thriller.”
Publishers Weekly (starred review) on Kill Decision

“Greatest. Techno-thriller. Period. Experts have long feared the Internet doomsday scenario. Daemon is arguably more terrifying.”
—William O’Brien, former White House director of Cybersecurity and Communications Policy, on Daemon

Daemon does for surfing the web what Jaws did for swimming in the ocean.”
Chicago Sun-Times

“Suarez’s fiction is closer to reality than most people think.”
—Chris Anderson, author and editor-in-chief of Wired, on Kill Decision
