Murray's technology and naval knowledge, including the inner workings of a sub, are impressive. The amount of research that went into the book must be great. "Twenty-four Days" is a strong and exciting follow-up to "To Hunt a Sub."
One thing I enjoyed about To Hunt a Sub was the technical reality Murray created for both the scientific and military elements of the book. I completely believed the naval and investigatory hierarchy and protocols, as well as the operation inside the sub. This book is just as convincing as the first but with the addition of a battleship. The operation, acronyms, and lingo were technical, realistic, and occasionally over my head, but never to the degree that I was lost. Rather, I was thoroughly convinced that Murry is a submariner!
The science behind both reads is well researched and felt completely authentic, from cutting-edge military science and technology to the capabilities of artificial intelligence. The first book introduces the reader to Otto, a computer-housed AI. He was effective and fascinating but not terribly engaging. In Twenty-four Days, Otto gets a mobile body and the algorithms necessary to acquire a personality. He becomes a captivating character in the story and was one of my favorites as he participates in problem-solving and saving the world from war. The whole cast of characters is well drawn, their personalities, emotions, and relationships believable. There isn't a lot of downtime to get to know them deeply though - the main reason to start with the first book.
All in all, a thrill of a read - 5 stars and highly recommended. I'm already looking forward to the next one!
And that's exactly what an extreme terrorist organization has managed to hijack--the US submarine Virginia, and its British counterpart, Triumph. Once the subs maneuver into position, the entire world will be hostage to the terrorists' demands.
Former SEAL Zeke Rowe, artificial intelligence scientist Kali Delamagente, and her creation, Otto, have just twenty-four days to save the world from the threat of a mushroom cloud.
I read technothrillers, but I don't write them. My mind struggles with the necessary details to make the story come to life. But Jacqui Murray obviously doesn't share this problem. She dribbles in the necessary world-building in just the right places. The result is a tale that's chilling in its plausibility.
I give it four stars.
This writer obviously puts a lot of research into her story line and characters, managing to provide a gripping story backed up by sound and supportive information. This is a hard read to put down, so pull up a comfortable chair, a tall glass of your favorite beverage and be prepared to be totally entertained. And yes, I can see this as a movie for sure.
It boggles my mind to think of the research it must have required to tell this tale. I'm sure fans of the military genre would enjoy it.
