I am a fan of Greg Iles and a fan of Penn Cage. This book didn't disappoint. I have read others, completely out of order, and I have to say, every book, I can pick up and don't feel I missed a lot having not read them in order. That said, glad to have read book 1.
Penn Cage is a larger than life character, seeking justice with determination that seems daunting. To me, he is a character you can admire. I love how the author delves into the true heart of what was going on in the 60's and even today.
There is a lot of action in this book. A great read.

Somewhere out there, right now, the NSA, the CIA and a top secret group of quantum physicists are trying to build a computer that can hold a human soul and talk to God. At least, that's the premise of Greg Iles' The Footprints of God. It's not as kooky as it sounds. Pursued by the NSA and the military, with only his psychiatrist to help, a professor must prove his sanity and unravel the mystery of his complicated nightmares, a side-effect of his work, all while trying to stop a supercomputer with a God complex from destroying the planet. Similar in theme to Dan Brown's work, yet better written, this novel tackles issues of religion and modern science with a fast-moving, engaging plot.… (mais)

For my first book by Iles, this was a good choice. The first few chapters were good enough to make me want to keep going. From there, the plot thickens, but never gels....at least not to me. I'm not sure what Iles was trying to accomplish (other than to create a villain in the image of the wicked Hannibal), but it didn't work for me. The ending was too drawn out and gave the heroine almost superhuman skills, intelligence and strength to save herself. Besides, I quickly caught on to who the bad guy was.… (mais)
