To this finish, Melissa Shepherd, a super programmer, has constructed "Dorothy," a robust, self-modifying AI whose precise power is either progressive and terrifying. whilst miscalculations bring about a disaster in the course of checking out, Dorothy flees into the internet.
Former CIA agent Wyman Ford is tapped to trace down the rogue AI. As Ford and Shepherd look for Dorothy, they observe that her bad studies within the desolate tract of the web have replaced her in methods they could slightly think. And they're no longer the one ones trying to find the wayward software program: the AI is usually being pursued through a couple of Wall highway investors, who are looking to catch her code and switch her right into a high-speed buying and selling bot.Traumatized, offended, and relentlessly hunted, Dorothy has a unprecedented revelation—and devises a plan. because the pursuit of Dorothy converges on a abandoned residence at the coast of Northern California, Ford needs to face the last word query: is rescuing Dorothy the correct factor? Is the AI bent on saving the world... or on wiping out the melanoma that's humankind?

Mainstream mysteries are published first in hardcover and only later in rack-sized paperback. The mainstream mystery has many of the same elements as the genre mystery—clues, suspects, suspense, menace, and so on. However, the characters in mainstream mysteries are gener ally more "textured"; hence, they demonstrate more facets of character than characters in genre novels. Like other mainstream novels, characters in mainstream mysteries are more like "real" people with "real" problems. Mainstream mystery novels will often have a subplot involving, say, an ex-wife or a problem child, that has nothing to do with the murder.
