Summary

The secret to complete human understanding and world peace may be as close as the ocean….

It’s a technology with infinite possibilities. DJ Parker, billionaire developer of a proprietary artificial intelligence program, is on the cusp of cracking the miracle code that can usher in a new age of human progress. Amazingly, the technology is ancient, held by a group of beings that have been around for 50 million years: cetacea – species of aquatic mammals including killer whales. But Parker quickly learns he has dangerous enemies including a Russian conglomerate tied to the Kremlin which is seeking the research for its own nefarious purposes – and which will stop at nothing to get it. With DJ’s life in danger and the forces of evil seemingly everywhere, the fate of humankind is up for grabs.

A philosophical thriller, Lost Frequency confronts animal rights, human nature, artificial intelligence, and the perils of technology turned loose.

My Review

4/5 Stars

This is my first taste of a philosophical thriller, and I have to say it was very tastefully done. The focus on orca whales and the clash of their intelligence with human intelligence made for a unique read. While I hadn’t imagined there would be, there is plenty of action and mystery within the pages of this book.

Definitely worth it if you’re looking for something different and thought-provoking.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
