A twisted tense thriller...
OMG, this books is so totally twisted. It is a tense suspense / thriller filled with hours and hours of fantastic drama, action and humor too. It is a conspiracy of the worst kind and life as we know it could come to an end! I was very much impressed with this book and found myself gripping the arms of my chair many times. The ending is mind blowing.
Trevor Lennox is building the most sophisticated computer ever. A super computer that can think like a human. As great plans go, something always goes wrong.... I highly recommend this book, you won't be disappointed! I loved all the twists and turns this story took me through! Every time I thought that had to be all that could happen, more things would happen. There is no way anyone can guess how this will turn out!
The author, Paul Draker did a fantastic job writing this book. It is original, refreshing and never a dull moment in it. What an incredible imagination it took to write this. The narrator, Gabriel Vaughn nailed the delivery of this story. With so many different voices and accents. I found this book to be very entertaining and I could see it happening in real life too!
I received this audio book as a gift so I could review it.

Move over Shelley its the 21st century
Any additional comments?
If you find technology interesting and you like to jump in the dark, then Paul Draker ‘s Pyramid Lake should be at the top of your list. The book has everything that you need and nothing that you don’t for a thrilling and thought provoking hi-tech who-dun-it. Mary Shelley would have been entranced by Pyramid Lake as it bends the classic Frankenstein theme flawlessly to the 21st century.
Like Shelley, Draker intelligently explores the inner workings of the human psyche (and the human skull for that matter) and applies contemporary technology with ultra believable detail. As in Draker’s previous work, New Year Island, Pyramid Lake is not for the weak of heart or bladder. The book starts tamely and moves on to hit hard and with unexpected twists that get a bit graphic, all the while keeping the reader wondering who is about to jump out and bite. No spoilers here, but in the end, the book really makes you stop and think about humans and technology…wow
Gabriel Vaughan brings Draker’s characters to life with realistic sounding voice adaptations and accents. His pace and consistency is spot-on which drew me into the story and never distracted. Kudos to Vaughan for consistency in a book with o so many twists, turns and pops. His portrayal of Trevor Lennox, the emotionally unconnected but brilliant lead character was so good I could clearly imagine Trevor's every small expression.
I would highly recommend both Pyramid Lake and Vaughan , my only complaint is that there is no more read. My vote…bring on the sequel!
