Devil's Plaything

Front Cover
Harper Collins, May 31, 2011 - Fiction - 448 pages
6 Reviews

“Smart, captivating, sophisticated; I can’t say enough about this deftly told story.”
—Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author of The Emperor’s Tomb

“A brilliant thriller that defies genre and scope; a twisted blend of Michael Crichton and Alfred Hitchcock.”
—James Rollins, New York Times bestselling author of Altar of Eden

A Pulitzer Prize winner for Journalism in 2010, New York Times science reporter Matt Richtel delivers a phenomenal “neuro-tech” thriller about a dark and insidious plot to reengineer the human brain. Devil’s Plaything is smart, fast, and terrifyingly plausible—a page-turner of the first order from the critically acclaimed author of Hooked, whom author David Liss (The Devil’s Company) calls, “The absolute master of crafting amazing fiction around cutting edge science.”
