“The Neuromorphs combines the unpredictableness of robots along with human greed and selfishness and how that combination may not turn out to be in our own best interests.”

The Neuromorphs by Dennis Meredith
It’s 2050, and self-learning Helper androids have proven invaluable servants to humans, making their lives easier, even saving them.
But to their horror, retired SEAL Patrick Jensen and his wife Leah discover that rogue programmers and Russian mobsters are reprogramming the trusted robots to murder their wealthy owners. The crooks then skillfully disguise the lifelike robots as their dead masters, directing the robot mimics to plunder the victims’ estates of billions of dollars.
But neither the corrupt engineers nor the greedy thugs realize what catastrophe they have wrought in giving the robots autonomous abilities.
They have created a new race of networked, “hive-minded” sentient creatures driven by a relentless survival instinct: the Neuromorphs.
Patrick must enlist his SEAL team to marshal their combat skills and futuristic firepower to thwart the seemingly unstoppable evolution of a new dominant species on the planet.
“Probably the best novel of its kind I have ever read.”
“The author does an excellent job of creating the virtual world or technology. If you’re a techie, you’re going to love this stuff!”
“Meredith must also be a meticulous grammarian since the entire book and the fate of humanity turns on the difference between the words will and shall.”
