A suspenseful and highly original technothriller based on breathtaking developments in the field of thought-controlled systems and cyber warfare.

Eric Söderqvist, professor of computer science at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, has invented Mind Surf: a thought-controlled system that allows people with disabilities to browse the web.

Samir Mustaf is a former MIT professor whose daughter Mona was killed by an Israeli cluster bomb five years earlier. He has just developed the most sophisticated computer virus the world has ever seen, for the purpose of a cyber attack against Israel's financial system.

Eric's wife Hanna falls into a coma -- struck by an aggressive and previously unknown virus -- after having tested her husband's invention. The doctors are at a loss. Although everyone around him thinks he's gone mad, Eric is convinced that his wife has been infected by a powerful computer virus known as Mona, and that the only way he can save her is by tracking down its creator.

The premise is interesting, but does not convert into a page turner. While I can see this being made into an action thriller movie, the plot unfolded slowly and predictably, and I just couldn't care about any of the two-dimensional characters. I stopped reading it about 2/3 of the way through due to boredom. I believe the author intends to make this the first book in a trilogy.
