Summary
Solo, the combat robot hero from Weapon returns. His mission: to rescue his traumatically twisted mechanical twin, Nimrod, from its CIA trainers. But Nimrod has other plans. Safely ensconced in his jungle hideaway, Solo uplinks to the satellite network that circles the globe, and discovered an amazing fact. He's not alone. There's another one like him. Code-named Nimrod, it has the same extraordinary physical and computer-reasoning abilities as Solo. In all senses but the biological, the two are brothers, bound by a tie they share with no other creature on earth. Determined not to repeat the mistakes they made with Solo and its humanistic education, the Army is conditioning Nimrod with electronically induced pain reinforcement. in fact, they've created a monster. Instead of the unquestioningly obedient robot it appears to be, Nimrod is a brilliant paranoid, with no moral core and the strength of thirty men. It is more than superhuman, and ultimately, it is uncontrollable. Leaving his sanctuary, Solo hitches a ride in the bilge compartment of a banana boat and arrives in New York-the one place in America his satellites scans have told him a six-foot-two, three-hundred-pound, man-shaped machine covered in carbon fiber may pass unnoticed-and prepares to rescue Nimrod. But the Pentagon knows Solo will not be able to resist the temptation of a soul mate, and using Nimrod as bait, it lures Solo into a trap meant to destroy the robot. As Solo strategizes his assault, Nimrod quietly begins to discover its power, and to plot its own violent revenge. The stage is set for the ultimate confrontation, one that will keep readers on the edge of their seats and once again establish Robert Mason as a unique master of high-tech adventure
