Bestselling novelist Greg Iles was born in 1960 in Stuttgart, Germany, where his father was in charge of the medical clinic at the U.S. Embassy. He grew up in Natchez, Mississippi and graduated from the University of Mississippi in 1983. Iles founded the band Frankly Scarlet and played music for a living for a few years before deciding to write. Iles's second novel, Black Cross, was awarded the Mississippi Author's Award for Fiction in 1995. He belongs to the author rock band known as The Rock Bottom Remainders.
From its masterly opening line, Iles's (24 Hours) latest thriller is impossible to put down. We find Dr. David Tennant contemplating his life after friend and mentor Andrew Fielding is found dead in his lab. A stroke is the suspected 'cause, but David knows better because both men were part of an ultra-top-secret project known as Project Trinity, a quantum leap in the future of super computing and artificial intelligence.
Both men had warned their managers about the experiment's dangers, and now David believes that he is next on the hit list. But he is starting to show strange side effects from the treatment he undertook for the project and is experiencing vivid visions of being Jesus Christ. His psychiatrist thinks that he should be institutionalized, until she, too, is targeted to be killed. The reader must make a great leap of faith in the final third of the book, and while not everyone will agree with Iles's conclusions, the work as a whole is extremely compelling. This is Iles's best book yet and should be a major best seller. For all fiction collections.

Trinity. The government's top-secret supercomputer is an intelligence beyond comprehension -- and a nightmare beyond humanity's worst fears.

Mankind's future hangs in the balance -- and the price of failure is extinction.
