Rising out of the stony canyons of Nevada, Utopia is a place known for its cutting edge robots, awe-inspiring holographics, and white-knuckle thrills. Attracting 65,000 visitors each day, it embodies a new generation of entertainment. But serious mishaps are beginning to disrupt the once-flawless technology. Dr. Andrew Warne, the brilliant computer engineer who designed much of the park´s robotics, is summoned from the East Coast to get things back on track.On the day Warne arrives, however, Utopia finds itself caught in the grip of something far more sinister. A group of ruthless mercenaries has infiltrated the park´s computerized infrastructure, gaining complete control over all of its systems. Their communication begins with a simple and dire warning: if their demands are not met, chaos will descend on Utopia, and every man, woman, and child will become a target. As the minutes tick away, Warne´s struggle to outsmart his opponents becomes more urgent - for his only daughter is among the unsuspecting crowd in the park.With hair-raising thrills and heart-stopping twists, Lincoln Child evokes the technological wonders of Utopia with such skill and precision it is hard to believe that the park exists only in the words of this extraordinary audio program. 1.

For Doug Fiore running for governor was better than death at the mob´s hands, if only the sex wouldn´t get in the way. Mob head Sal Tarantino doesn´t want big-time casino gambling to become legal in Rhode Island. His solution is to have the next governor comfortably in his pocket, ready to veto the legislation. That means calling in the debts owed to the mob by some of Rhode Island´s most prominent politicians, to clear the way for Doug Fiore, managing partner of the state´s largest law firm and soon-to-be reluctant gubernatorial candidate. Sal´s plan seems to be going smoothly until the primary draws closer, when Fiore´s opponent, a supporter of state-sponsored gambling and the leader in the polls, is gunned down in a bar along with the establishment´s bookie-in-residence. The public presumption, driven by columns in the Providence Herald in which Fiore´s ties to the family are laid out, is that the Tarantino family had reasons to want them both dead. Things get even stickier when the winner of the Democratic primary is the husband of one of Fiore´s law partners--who happens to also be one of his two mistresses. She learns with horror that her husband has a set of secret recordings taken in a hotel room where Fiore has met with both women. As the race draws to a close, the candidates are in a dead heat. Fiore, who now will stop at nothing to win, devises a scheme with both his mistresses to nail down his victory. The outcome is all in the sex. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Joe Knezevich.
