From the Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times journalist and author of A Deadly Wandering comes a pulse-pounding technological thriller--as ingenious as the works of Michael Crichton and as urgent and irresistible as an episode of 24--in which one man has three days to prevent annihilation: the outbreak of World War III.

Computer genius Jeremy Stillwater has designed a machine that can predict global conflicts and ultimately head them off. But he's a stubborn guy, very sure of his own genius, and has wound up making enemies, and even seen his brilliant invention discredited.

There's nowhere for him to turn when the most remarkable thing happens: his computer beeps with warning that the outbreak of World War III is imminent, three days and counting.

Alone, armed with nothing but his own ingenuity, he embarks on quest to find the mysterious and powerful nemesis determined to destroy mankind. But enemies lurk in the shadows waiting to strike. Could they have figured out how to use Jeremy, and his invention, for their own evil ends?

Before he can save billions of lives, Jeremy has to figure out how to save his own. . . .

Great intellectual book. Every chapters focuses on various key players and the story evolves and overlaps and eventually shows how these people's stories overlap. It takes place in LA and follows the discovery and choices of the main character finding out that his doomsday predicting computer shows the end of the world is closer than anyone thought.

Holy Soap Opera, Batman! A book where the main character reminds you of the Unibomber??? Could this book be more trivial and boring and written like a REJECTED soap opera script [I forget their names, but something like Endless Day, or the Business Conference Where Everyone Slept, or something!]. If you need a cure for insomnia, this is the book for you.
