About this title
Nanotechnology promises all things: immortality, invincibility, wealth beyond imagination---and the utter destruction of mankind. One man has it, and no one knows who. . . .
Mitchell Swain is the richest man in the world, until he announces the "ultimate technological breakthrough." The world stops for the press conference---and sees him assassinated.
No one knows what he was going to say.
Almost no one.
Jennifer Rayne intends to find out. A leading journalist covering high-tech, she was scheduled to interview Swain after the press conference. Instead, she investigates his murder.
What she finds is a scientist to whom Swain has funneled billions . . . a desperate U.S. government following the same clues . . . and a bizarre technology that promises invincibility, immortality, and the ability to destroy any enemy---or the earth itself.
Mankind has entered the final arms race.
It will last two days.
As this breathlessly fast-paced nanothriller unfolds, readers are taken on a stunning tour de force of nanotechnology's promises and perils---until the fate of the earth itself hangs in the balance. . . .
Within days of publication, NANO was honored with the Nanotechnology Now Editor's Choice Award. NANO has also been selected as the current Book of the Month by the World Transhumanist Association. I would like to thank those involved for both honors. I'd also like to thank all of those who've read and are reading the book--please feel free to send me your comments; you can find me on the web.
