Mind’s Eye by Douglas E. Richards
Science Fiction/Thriller, 4.3 stars, 2183 reviews
Nick Hall can’t remember who he is, but a number of people seem desperate to kill him. Soon Hall learns that advanced electronics have been implanted in his brain, allowing him to surf the web with his thoughts and read minds. But who inserted the implants? And why? And why has he been marked for death? As Hall races to find answers, he comes to learn that far more is at stake than just his life. Because his actions can either catapult civilization to new heights–or bring about its total collapse. Extrapolated from actual research on thought-controlled web surfing, Mind’s Eye is a roller-coaster ride of a thriller that raises a number of intriguing, and sometimes chilling, possibilities about a future that is just around the corner.
