Fasten your seat beltsthe white-knuckle thrills at Utopia, the worlds most fantastic theme park, escalate to nightmare proportions in this intricately imagined techno-thriller by New York Times bestselling author Lincoln Child.Rising out of the stony canyons of Nevada, Utopia is a world on the cutting edge of technology. A theme park attracting 65,000 visitors each day, its dazzling array of robots and futuristic holograms make it a worldwide sensation. But ominous mishaps are beginning to disrupt the once flawless technology. A friendly robot goes haywire, causing panic, and a popular roller coaster malfunctions, nearly killing a teenaged rider. Dr. Andrew Warne, the brilliant computer engineer who designed much of the parks robotics, is summoned from the East Coast to get things back on track.On the day Warne arrives, however, Utopia is caught in the grip of something far more sinister. A group of ruthless criminals has infiltrated the parks computerized infrastructure, giving them complete access to all of Utopias attractions and systems. Their communication begins with a simple and dire warning: If their demands are met, none of the 65,000 people in the park that day will ever know they were there if not, chaos will descend, and every man, woman, and child will become a target. As one of the brains behind Utopia, Warne finds himself thrust into a role he never imagined trying to save the lives of thousands of innocent people. And as the minutes tick away, Warnes struggle to outsmart his opponents grows ever more urgent, for his only daughter is among the unsuspecting crowds in the park.

5 of 5 Theme Park Thrills November 2, 2010
Reviewer: Nikki C. from TX United States  
Utopia is a fast paced race against the clock. In a place where illusion is appears to be reality and high tech computers control everything from the park rides and scenery to the robots that make your milkshakes, any glitch can cause major problems. When that glitch turns into viable threats from a group of terrorists, the danger escalates for the unknowing park visitors.

This techno-thriller keeps the pace rolling, as attempts to foil the terrorists' demands fail and the lives of thousands of innocent people hang in air. This is another scenario where computer technology thought to be perfect can wreak havok and mayhem if placed (or taken by) the wrong hands.
