Publisher's Summary

The Singularity - the looming point of no return when Artificial Intelligence surpasses human cognitive abilities, with consequences no one can foresee, and only a handful of people understand.
Rusty Mullins, ex-Secret Service, has never heard of the Singularity. He only knows that after the deadly challenges of his last job for security firm Prime Protection, he swore he'd stop risking his life on assignments. Then his good friend Ted Lewison, head of Prime Protection, asks him back for a routine mission guarding Chinese scientist Dr. Lisa Li and her seven-year-old nephew, Peter, and Mullins agrees.
The conference on AI bringing Dr. Li to Washington, DC, is barely under way when a team of assassins storms the room. The carnage is great but Mullins saves Dr. Li and Peter while the attackers kill the two other AI experts, along with Lewison.
His widow begs Mullins to uncover the power behind the group claiming credit for the assassinations. Is "Double H" homegrown, or part of a larger international conspiracy? Enter eccentric tech billionaire Robert Brentwood who requests Mullins continue to guard Dr. Li and Peter. Brentwood seeks the Singularity and believes Dr. Li holds the key. Mullins agrees in exchange for running his investigation through Brentwood's extraordinary computer resources.
The quest leads him on an unexpected path from Naval Intelligence and the Oval Office to a secret research lab in the North Carolina mountains. No one can be trusted - the race for the Singularity is a global winner-takes-all contest.
Yet, terrifyingly, a machine with capacity exceeding human intelligence can outstrip all controls while possessing no moral or ethical brakes. As the AI stakeholders go all out, Mullins must face his own singularity - the point of no return - when not just he but his family and Dr. Li's will become casualties in what amounts to war.

The Singularity Race

The premise of this book is AI infiltrating and taking over the digital world was realistic and a bit scary. I love the protagonist Rusty and the other characters were developed well and relatable. It was very suspenseful at times and not easy to see how the ending would play out.

Edge of your seat thrill ride

This is another book I chose to listen to simply because of the narrator. The author is new to me no longer! I loved this book and plan to listen to everything else from this author asap; though, I plan to start with "The 13th Target" because I'm told that's where the main character in "The Singularity Race" made his debut.
"The Singularity Race" is a fast paced, edge of your seat thrill ride that keeps you guessing. I was pulled in from the very first scene and couldn't put it down. Luckily, I started it on a Saturday night because I ended up staying up all night to listen straight through! Excellent book! The narration is fabulous, too! Eric Bryan Moore does an outstanding job giving each character a unique voice, even the female voices and child voices are perfect! Overall, its an awesome book with stellar narration that's most definitely worth a listen! I received a review copy at my request and voluntarily reviewed.
