Particle physicist Jon Grady is ecstatic when his team achieves what they've been working toward for years: a device that can reflect gravity. Grady expects widespread acclaim for his entire team. Instead, his lab is locked down by a shadowy organization whose mission is to prevent at all costs the social upheval sudden technological advances bring. This Bureau of Technology Control uses the advanced technologies they have harvested over the decades to fulfill their mission. Presented with the opportunity to join the BTC, Grady balks, and is instead thrown into a nightmarish high-tech prison built to hold rebellious geniuses like himself. With so many great intellects confined together, can Grady and his fellow prisoners conceive of a way to usher humanity out of its its artificial dark age?

Professional reviews

"Narrator Jeff Gurner gives a star performance of SuarezÕs compelling techno-thriller, which is reminiscent of the science-fiction classics of the 1950s and Ô60s: The bad guysÑset on world dominationÑare very bad. The nerdy good guysÑweak on social skillsÑare totally good. The love interest is brilliant, dangerous, and breathtakingly beautiful. ThereÕs even a ray gun. GurnerÕs friendly tenor breathes life into some flat dialogue. His accents allow listeners to identify characters who are always engaging, funny, and under control. His pacing is exceptionally good, even in moments of high drama. F.C. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine"
