Publisher's Summary

When the Academy Awards become the target of a brutal terror attack, only one man can stave off massive bloodshed.
Mind's Eye, the novel that introduced Nick Hall, was a runaway Kindle best seller. Now Hall returns in a riveting standalone thriller set in an Internet future that is just around the corner. From the New York Times best-selling author of Wired.
Nick Hall, an unwilling recipient of brain implants, can surf the Web with his thoughts and read minds. And while this makes him one of the most formidable men on Earth, he is determined to stay off the grid. But when terrorists seize control of the Academy Awards and vow to butcher the world's most beloved stars one by one in front of an international television audience, Hall is forced to reveal his astonishing capabilities.
Now power players around the world will stop at nothing to capture him. And as the secretive group working with Hall begins to unravel, he is sure of only two things: He has been betrayed by someone close to him. And the stakes he is playing for could not be any higher....
Based on actual research on thought-controlled Web surfing, BrainWeb is a smart thriller that raises a number of intriguing possibilities about a future that is rapidly approaching.

A few books rolled into one

I loved the first few chapters: they read like a gripping action thriller. Once that was resolved, Part 2 felt like a bolted-on book, as did Part 3. The three parts were exciting in their own way, but they didn't flow well. Overall, it wasn't a bad book, and it was indeed classic techno-thriller fare from Douglas, so worth a read if you are a fan of the author or genre.
