A novel by

Can you really trust an AI? What about an SI (Super Intelligence)?

Stephen Hawking - "The development of artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race."

Vladimir Putin - "Whoever reaches a breakthrough in developing artificial intelligence will come to dominate the world."

Body Shop is the second book in the Annihilation series.

What should you do when an AI says it wants a body? Agree.

At some time in the near future, superintelligences will become far more powerful than we expect. The lower level intelligences - robots - will rival humans. There will be conflicts, guaranteed.

Pepper Mountain is the scene of the final body build effort and Darwin almost blows the project. Literally. And it's his body.

Meanwhile, Bronwyn does her own thing. The clown surfaces. Toby and Billie grow closer.

Mix in politics, deadly attacks by brownshirts, add some Russian involvement, a sabotaged aircraft and you have the next stage in Darwin's story.

John says: "I don't know whether to describe the Annihilation Series as a technothriller or a political thriller or simply as an exciting action thriller series. I'll let you make up your mind. In any case it's definitely a thriller."
