Minutely researched and skillfully plotted, the first edition of "Virtually Maria" sold almost 10,000 copies in its first printing and was selected as "Book of the Month" by the Easons book chain. It has been translated into Russian, where it is currently in its second edition under the publishing giant ACT.

I have just finished reading this trilogy and loved it! Each of the books is currently £1.35, although i did get them for free. Both the first and second work as an individual story whilst the third is essentially the conclusion of the theme. For those that like the stories edit perfect there are a few typos but nothing that I would consider off putting. I often find that the technothriller genre can be complex and baffling resulting in the reader having to keep going backwards to check details before moving forwards, however with this story the I think the romantic elements keep the story simple and easy to follow. The romance and associated emotions is an integral part of the story, but is in keeping with the overall story. There is a few naughty words and a few sexual scenes (not overly explicit) but I would happily recommend this book as suitable to everyone from YA upwards looking for a quick, satisfying read. My only negative thought is it left me thinking what if????

Loved the first book, I found the second a bit slower paced, not so convincing somehow. I have bought the third book but decided to read this later, so it will be good to come back to it. The first book is a great read, very unique plot, some well defined characters and definitely worth buying.

By A Customer on 11 Nov. 1998
Format: Paperback
A billionaire (Theo Gilkrensky) watches his wife die horribly and hides himself away from the world until one of his computer-piloted aircraft mysteriously crashes into the sands outside Cario. When Theo arrives to investigate, his bodyguard detail have their hands full as plots to kill the billionaire grow like weeds around them. Then the air-crash is linked to the mystical forces of the Great Pyramids...
Joyce's first novel is ambitious and full of interesting ideas. No surprising plot twists or un-expected double crosses, but there is a determined attempt to compensate with some smooth set-pieces, the best of which is a multi-helicopter air-battle/dual over the River Nile.
The perfect, sandy holiday read

A friend gave me their copy of this book and I can't wait to get the next two in the trilogy. A Matter of Time (Virtual Trilogy) and Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow (Virtual Trilogy). I've thoroughly enjoyed reading it. It reminds me a bit of Michael Crichton (like timeline) and also Ken Follett (like whiteout). The characters are all well introduced and the story line makes you want to keep reading. It appears a bit of a corporate thriller to start with but then various story lines of revenge and love lead to a significant twist that both thriller and sci-fi fans will love. Definitely going to get the others as soon as I can.

This thriller draws you into the Gilkrensky Corporation and before you know it you are a captive in the corridors of power, trying to find out what happened to Maria, and why did the plane go down. You get to fly over Cairo, crawl into a pyramid, explore the mysterious links between past and present through the power of the pyramids. You get help form some intuitive and forward thinking hi-tech toys. (Bill Gates should read this)
A very good read for that rainy weekend when you feel like solving a few other peoples problems

I came across this book in a second-hand book shop a few years back. I found the theme of AI, Mythology, Ireland and martial arts compelling. The characters have depth and flaws and the plot moves along at a gripping pace - so much so I read the book in one sitting. Afterwards I went out and bought copies for friends and family; My father (God rest his soul), never a Sci-Fi fan really enjoyed the series - its just a pity he never lived long enough to read the last in the series.

A really enjoyable book which I keep re-reading
