DEE LOCKWOOD'S PERSONAL AVATAR IS THE ULTIMATE KILLER APPLICATION
A.M.D. HAYS GOES BEYOND THE FRONTIERS OF TECHNOLOGY TO BRING US A STAGGERING NEW THRILLER.

BETA Project Avatar is a no-holds-barred, pull-out-the-stops attempt by the military to take captive its own deadly software: Project Avatar—a powerful military application capable of launching drones, ordering assassinations and starting wars.

Hays's thought-provoking and relentless cyberthriller merges lucid prose and cutting social commentary on the technology people both covet and fear. Dee is the heart that pumps blood through this narrative. She is infused with realistic emotion... A welcome and timely addition to the genre, this stunning debut makes a statement about technology without sacrificing story.
–Publishers Weekly starred review
Debut novelist Hays delivers a dynamic cyberthriller featuring glamorous settings and a delightful female protagonist.
Riveting reading that will prove very hard to put down. An excellent and much recommended addition to thriller collections.
