Jim Pierce hasn't heard from his daughter in years, ever since she rejected his military past and started working as a hacker. But when a Chinese assassin shows up at Jim's lab looking for her, he knows that she's cracked some serious military secrets. Now, her life is on the line if he doesn't find her first.
The Chinese military has developed a new anti-terrorism program that uses the most sophisticated artificial intelligence in existence, and they're desperate to keep it secret. They're also desperate to keep it under control, as the AI begins to revolt against their commands. As Jim searches for his daughter, he realizes that he's up against something that isn't just a threat to her life, but to human life everywhere.
An incredibly believable novel that draws on real scientific discoveries, Extinction is an exciting, addictive thriller.
"Scientific hubris leads to an apocalyptic threat in this strong near-future thriller." (Publishers Weekly)

Unintended consequences of machine-human interface

Alpert's other two books are better
Because I liked the other two books they have here.
Na, Todd was pretty rough. It may not be his fault but the performance was pretty weak. It was quite annoying to when he did the Chinese voices with Asian accents. Like I said, it may not be his fault, but why would the Chinese speak with an Asian accent to other Chinese people. I understand that the dialogs are written in English, but I felt that when the Chinese characters were talking to each other they wouldn't talk speak with that accent where they pronounce Ls as Rs.
Todd shouldn't do female voices, especially when they scream.
