You know a book has potential when you begin to imagine which actor/actress will play the main parts in the film. This is the case with Fox's second novel, a fast-paced, intriguing 'techno-thriller'. There is little in-depth character analysis, but that would only obfuscate the action, and disrupt the enjoyment. The plot revolves around the theft of a video game (the acronym LUCI meaning Light Ultra Conductive Intelligence) for use in a next generation stealth warplane. However, the thief is unaware the game has a Doom Level, a deadly contest between the interactive skills of the player/pilot and the artificial intelligence - LUCI. Maria, the beautiful female inventor, enlists the help of a reluctant accomplice Terry Weston, a patriotic industrial spy, to get her programme back; she breaks into his Swiss Bank account and sequesters away his lifetime-aquired nest egg (some $13 million). Left with the choice of help or never see his money again, the unlikely duo set out to gain access to the now improved LUCI aircraft. The anticipated twist at the end, even when you know it is coming,leaves the reader with a sense of balance restored.
