The Lorelei Effect by Michael Alan British Arts Council 2007 Book of the Year Award Winner "I'm the guy techies call when they run out of ideas - a hacker's hacker. The convoluted puzzles I squeeze into my mind make me feel not so much like a programmer as a computer therapist. I'm a modern day Columbus sailing the digital ocean, secretly worrying about falling off the edge and having to stare down the great turtle that holds everything together." Loner Cyrus Shepard gets a mysterious phone call in the middle of the night and next day finds himself in a government digital weapons lab. "My mother was a nurse. She taught me work comes first. My father was a chemistry teacher. He taught me curiosity. Stubbornness and insecurity I thought up on my own." Neuropsychiatrist Rebecca Jenkins leads a research program with catatonic patients. Her work moves to a secret lab in a turn of the century asylum for the insane where she encounters The Lorelei Effect. Cyrus and Rebecca reach inside each other to fight a discovery that threatens the very sanctity of the human spirit. Acclaim for The Lorelei Effect on "A blistering pace with devilishly clever twists that will keep you guessing every step of the way. " "Far and away the best of close to 200 stories I've reviewed." "In a word: Wow!" "A great read...a gripping story with profound thematic resonance." "The story reaches out and swallows us up. No chance of escape." "In the niche of science-based thrillers as typified by Michael Crichton."
