If you love fast moving thrillers, then this is going to be the book for you to read! I don't know where these authors come up with their imaginative stories to shock us, but they do and this is one of the better ones that I have read!
I hope that it never actually happens, but I guess anything is possible in this new day when computers and technology are getting more and more advanced. This one is focused on a billionaire wanting to show off his new software thru fireworks going off around the world and it starts in China.
Unfortunately, China has other ideas, and when everyone watching the fireworks suddenly go blind, it's a huge disaster all over the world. Of course, there are some people here and there that didn't see the fireworks and can see, so it's up to them to rescue the rest of the world.
Great story and fast paced! You will love reading this thriller all the way to the end!
