Author Nowick Grayabout this book: Computer viruses are enough of a threat to our digital lives - just as biological viruses are a threat to our health. What if a computer virus were designed to transfer to the user, inserting program cues into neurological circuits and gathering feedback to further manipulate and control?

PsyBot is just that: a cybervirus designed to insert a virtual reality program into the mind of the user. Originally created as a tough-love interface to teach deeper questioning of one's choices, the virus program is hacked and co-opted by higher-up corporate interests as a beta test for a wider application of mind control. Alien intervention is part of the package, too - or that just a red herring? Programmer Joe Norton must navigate a deadly mission, fighting for his sanity and survival while uncovering the real agenda at play.

This literate psychological thriller recalls the intelligent science fiction of Michael Crichton, William Gibson and Philip K. Dick - or the popular films Inception, Minority Report, Source Code, Total Recall and The Adjustment Bureau. Fans of cyberpunk might view this scenario as the prequel to a cyberpunk world, society at large unaffected... yet.
