The breathtaking novel from the New York Times bestselling author called, “A worthy successor to Michael Crichton.” (SF Book.com).
Nick Hall awakens with powerful implants in his brain and assassins on his tail. And the future of humanity depends on his survival.
Now the subject of an upcoming movie franchise! (Variety, 11/17/21).
A riveting sci-fi thriller from the NY Times bestselling author whose books have sold over two million copies.
When Nick Hall awakens in a dumpster, bloodied and without a memory, he can’t imagine how things could get worse. But that’s before multiple assassins promptly start trying to kill him. Hall soon discovers that advanced electronics have been implanted in his brain, and he now has two astonishing abilities–he can surf the web using thoughts alone, and he can read minds.
But who inserted the implants? And why? And why is someone so desperate to kill him?
As Hall races to find answers, he comes to learn that far more is at stake than just his life. Because his actions can either catapult civilization to new heights–or bring about its total collapse.
Based on actual research on neural implants and thought-controlled web surfing (and foreshadowing the emergence of brain implant companies such as Elon Musk’s Neuralink), Mind’s Eye is a smart, roller-coaster ride of a thriller. One that raises a number of intriguing, and sometimes chilling, possibilities about a future that is just around the corner.
