PERiL Dies. The thrilling conclusion. It's the end of the world but maybe this world needs to die. Everyone wants a new world but what are they willing to do to create it? One is life, one is death; one is destroyed, and one is destruction but it wears a disguise. There is more than one option but only one outcome. An unbridled fear leads to PERiL. Fake your greatest fear or run from it; choose wisely or it will devour you. Every action is wrong; every move is not good enough. The illusion is gone; there is no more places to hide. Fight or die but either way time is no longer yours. No one will survive unscathed because the last failed experiment is you.

The PERiL Series is a journey across time, a mystery that weaves itself through the lives of many leaving only destruction in its wake. A puzzle only you can solve, what started a long time ago has corrupted everyone's future and led to almost everyone's demise. Out of time and stuck in the past, Detective Mathews and Wren must piece together the ruined lives of the puppets who have come before, the monsters who pull the strings and the people they can save. The choices they make will seal their fate.

 And the boy’s gaze would haunt James forever. Because it seemed to be Phil still — the kid across the street with the soft handshake and polite manners and unstoppable off-tackle. Phillip looked up and his eyes met James’. Phil stopped eating then, and just stared. James stared back, saying everything but nothing at all, two neighbors considering each other from opposite ends of a shallow grave. They seemed to share the same universal thought — what have we come to? 

Phil's eyes dropped to the pavement and his shoulders sunk, a melted candle of a boy. 
“Am I next?” James asked. 
“We’ll see,” Phil responded in a somber voice and as if it wasn't up to him. 
He returned to his work, pulling and stabbing and cutting away at the dead girl’s oozing jugular. James recognized her — the girl who made the front page of the Greenville Times for tying the district’s 400-meter sprint record. His inclination was right — she was Phil’s girlfriend indeed. The paper had run a photo of the couple in tux and gown, standing in the atrium of Greenville’s aquatic center. Runners-up to the coveted Prom king and queen, the photo inset had read. She had looked pissed about it. 
Phil pulled and tore at her. Strands of flesh, still attached to the corpse, hung from his bloody grasp like tight elastic bands. When his eyes met James’ again, they embodied blank serenity. The boy was content with the meal before him, and content that James was far enough away not to take it...

The #1 New York Times bestselling author of Seveneves, Anathem, Reamde, and Cryptonomicon returns with a wildly inventive and entertaining science fiction thriller—Paradise Lost by way of Philip K. Dick—that unfolds in the near future, in parallel worlds.

In his youth, Richard “Dodge” Forthrast founded Corporation 9592, a gaming company that made him a multibillionaire. Now in his middle years, Dodge appreciates his comfortable, unencumbered life, managing his myriad business interests, and spending time with his beloved niece Zula and her young daughter, Sophia.

One beautiful autumn day, while he undergoes a routine medical procedure, something goes irrevocably wrong. Dodge is pronounced brain dead and put on life support, leaving his stunned family and close friends with difficult decisions. Long ago, when a much younger Dodge drew up his will, he directed that his body be given to a cryonics company now owned by enigmatic tech entrepreneur Elmo Shepherd. Legally bound to follow the directive despite their misgivings, Dodge’s family has his brain scanned and its data structures uploaded and stored in the cloud, until it can eventually be revived.

In the coming years, technology allows Dodge’s brain to be turned back on. It is an achievement that is nothing less than the disruption of death itself. An eternal afterlife—the Bitworld—is created, in which humans continue to exist as digital souls.

But this brave new immortal world is not the Utopia it might first seem . . .

Fall, or Dodge in Hell is pure, unadulterated fun: a grand drama of analog and digital, man and machine, angels and demons, gods and followers, the finite and the eternal. In this exhilarating epic, Neal Stephenson raises profound existential questions and touches on the revolutionary breakthroughs that are transforming our future. Combining the technological, philosophical, and spiritual in one grand myth, he delivers a mind-blowing speculative literary saga for the modern age.
