Peter Riva in his new book, “The Path book coverThe Path” Book One in the Tag Series published by Yucca Publishing introduces us to Simon Bank.

From the back cover:  All life on earth is about to be terminated by an entity as old as the galaxy itself. To make matters worse, Simon has broken everything already.

In a future world that is run by computer systems and that is without want, how can a man find his role? Then, if the very computers he works on to try to make them more human suddenly try to kill him, revealing a secret so vast that it affects every living soul on the planet, can that man be a hero?

These are the questions that face the stumbling, comic, and certainly flawed Simon Bank. His job is to work with the System’s artificial intelligence, making it fit more perfectly into human society so that it can keep the country running smoothly. But when the System threatens the peaceful world he knows, Simon suddenly must rush to save his own life, as well as the life of everyone on earth. Forced to reassess everything that he thought he knew, he is caught within circumstances way beyond his control.

Simon’s only hope is to rely on intellect and instincts he didn’t know he had, and on new friends, not all of them human, to change himself and all humanity. And he doesn’t have much time.

Does anyone remember the “Colossus” series where the super-computer, Colossus, had taken over dominion of the Earth? Well welcome to the future where the super-computer, System, now has control and we have given it over willingly. System manages our children, our climate, our jobs, our health, we lack for nothing. Except the computer has control. Well all that is about to change on account of Simon and Agent Cramer. You would not think so but Mr. Riva has given us a fast-paced thriller. “The Path” is loaded with twists and turns that will leave you guessing all the while you are flipping pages to find out what happens next. Man versus machine with his life in danger. Take the phone off the hook and make yourself a big bowl of popcorn because once you get started you will not want to put this book down until you actually finish. I have no idea of where this series is going but I am looking forward to the next book in this series.
