Inhaltsangabe

Ballerina Lucia del Mar has two great passions: dance, which consumes most of her waking hours, and the Internet, which brings the outside world into her tightly regimented life. These two passions collide when a White House performance and reception leads to an encounter with handsome Moroccan businessman Rashid al-Jazari, creator of a brilliant technology that has set the Internet rumor mill ablaze.

A second, seemingly chance meeting with Rashid plunges Lucia into a deadly world of desire and intrigue, for although his work has implications she cannot foresee, there are those who do understand and would turn its great power to their own destructive purposes.

As Lucia is drawn deeper and deeper into Rashid’s life and work, cut off from the outside world, she finds herself becoming more attracted to him. But is her seclusion within Rashid’s well-guarded Moroccan home intended to ensure her safety - or her silence? And is it already too late to stop the terrible consequences his new technology could unleash?

Kritikerstimmen

"At once thoughtful and imaginative, The Veiled Web is a… layering of East and West, of religion and technology, movement and introspection - and of love and its loss - all woven into an intriguing tapestry that shows one turning point in the eternal battle for the souls of men. If one knows quite what a soul is!" (Diana Gabaldon, New York Times best-selling author)
"A terrific novel, ripping a path from today’s headlines to tomorrow’s realities - a page-turning thriller tempered by romance and ethical concerns, with characters (even some nonhuman ones) you’ll care deeply about." (Robert J. Sawyer, Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author)
