Dead on the Internet

Its a case of murder and mystery at MIT.

Intelligent thinking machines and cyberspace are investigated on the college campus at one of Americas most prestigious and illustrious institutes of higher learning. Cutting edge robotics labs attempt to blend artificial intelligence and micro-organisms with mans propensity for greed and lust. This third Jack Kelly mystery leads to the basic question of existence and survival.

MIT graduate students are brutally murdered andex-Boston Police Homicide detective Jack Kelly is hired by the father of one.

Themurdered students are part of a group that works at MITs Artificial Intelligence Laboratory. The lab has recently developed a prototype for an all-purpose domestic robot that is expected to revolutionize modern society. Science fiction has become a reality. The Prototype Project has developed a moving intelligent machine that is wirelessly connected to the internet at all times. The robots think, adapt, research, network, andthey learn.Governments and their agencies, as well as the worlds major corporations are interested in manufacturing, developing, and servicing the domestic robots. The human-like robots will soon become essential to every modern home and business on the planet. These all-purpose domestic assistants are going to be very big business. And there are moral and philosophical questions to be answered.

One AI Lab grad student, Tom Peters, has left the pack and with money supplied by Las Vegas card counters and methamphetamine sales has started an escort service which is a thinly veiled prostitution ring. With his cold cash and connections to a very rich and influential group he realizes the huge sums of money and power that can be derived from the control of The Prototype Project.

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.
