SYNOPSIS:  “Eric Soderqvist, a professor of computer science at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, has invented Mind Surf, a pioneering thought-control system that allows people with disabilities to browse the web.

Meanwhile, Lebanese Samir Mustaf, a former MIT professor whose beloved daughter Mona was killed by a cluster bomb, has just finished creating the most sophisticated computer virus the world has ever seen, for the purpose of launching a devastating cyber attack on Israel’s financial system.

When Eric’s wife, Hanna, falls into a coma – after having tested her husband’s invention – the doctors are at a loss.  Eric, guilt-stricken and distraught, fixes on the unthinkable, becoming convinced that his wife has been infected by a powerful computer virus, and that the only way he can save her life is by tracking down its creator.”
