Riassunto: On New Year's Eve 1999, a chain reaction of computer malfunctions turns what was to be a global gala into a catastrophe. When computers begin to fail along the international dateline, the infection moves westward, causing massive power failures, train and airplane wrecks, and general havoc. As the "Millennium Bug" passes hour by hour through each time zone, it moves inexorably toward the epicenter of the global economy, New York, and the thousands of computers that control the world's monetary systems.
The Midnight Club, a group of cyberpunks led by Michael "Doc" Downs, has the solution--but they also have an adversary: energetic venture Capitalist Donald Copeland, who has designs on using his technological prowess to "capitalize" on the impending disaster.
Around 10:30 a.m. on December 31, a Safeway in New York is hit by the Bug, sent all the way from Guam. All systems freeze, and what begins as a simple malfunction snowballs into looting and rioting. Pandemonium reigns on the streets of Manhattan. As the day progresses, the blaze of fear increases to the point of insanity.
In the style of Michael Crichton and Stephen Coonts, Mark Joseph has created a techno-thriller that is sure to touch a nerve in everyone as the millennium draws closer.
Sinossi: On New Year's Day 2000, a chain reaction of computer malfunctions will erupt into a global catastrophe of epic proportions. The Midnight Club, a group of urban cyberpunks, has the solution--but it also has an adversary who plans to capitalize on the impending disaster...even if it will leave the rest of the world in total destruction.
