Robert Sawyer has won many awards for his science fiction, which is praised for its blend of high-tech mystery and suspenseful pacing. An experiment has gone terribly wrong. Dr. Peter Hobson has created three electronic simulations of his own personality. One will test life after death; another, immortality. The third one is the control unit. But now all three have escaped from Hobson's computer into the worldwide electronic matrix. And one of them is a killer.

"I love Paul Hecht's voice. Its masculine baritone, timbre, effortless articulation, and resonance conger radio tough guys like Howard Duff and Edmond O'Brien. In addition, he knows how to deliver an intelligent performance and vivify characters. Here he essays a Canadian sci-fi thriller with religious overtones, set in the near future. Dr. Hobson has achieved a great scientific breakthrough with a device that can tell when a soul enters and leaves a human body. To test a theory, he creates digital simulations of his living but bodiless self, his dead self, and a control self. Then, one of them (which?) begins murdering people. A cop has to die to stop the killer. Intriguing. Y.R. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine"
