A malevolent, artificial life form created by military scientists threatens to destroy humanity in this smart, Crichtonesque thriller
Jim Pierce hasn't heard from his daughter in years, ever since she rejected his military past and started working as a hacker. But when a Chinese assassin shows up at Jim's lab looking for her, he knows that she's cracked some serious military secrets. Now, her life is on the line if he doesn't find her first.
The Chinese military has developed a new anti-terrorism program that uses the most sophisticated artificial intelligence in existence, and they're desperate to keep it secret. They're also desperate to keep it under control, as the AI begins to revolt against their commands. As Jim searches for his daughter, he realizes that he's up against something that isn't just a threat to her life, but to human life everywhere.

An incredibly believable thriller that draws on real scientific discoveries, Mark Alpert's Extinction is an exciting, addictive thriller that reads as if Tom Clancy had written Robopocalypse.

MARK ALPERT, author of the internationally bestselling thriller Final Theory and its sequel, The Omega Theory, is a contributing editor at Scientific American. His work has also appeared in Fortune Magazine, Popular Mechanics and Playboy. He lives in Manhattan with his wife and two children.
