In The Void Protocol, New York Times bestselling author F. Paul Wilson concludes his medical thriller trilogy featuring Rick Hayden and Laura Fanning as they confront the entities responsible for the supernatural events of Panacea and The God Gene. Something sits in a bunker lab buried fifty feet below the grounds of Lakehurst Naval Air Station. The product of the Lange-Tür technology confiscated from the Germans after World War II occupies a chamber of steel-reinforced ballistic glass. Despite experimentation for nearly three-quarters of a century, no one knows what it is, but illegal human research reveals what it can do. Humans with special abilities have been secretly collected—abilities that can only have come from whatever occupies the underground bunker in Lakehurst. And so it sits, sequestered on the edge of the New Jersey Pine Barrens, slowly changing the world. F.

This discounted ebundle includes: Panacea, The God Gene, The Void Protocol Two secret societies vie for control of the ultimate medical miracle—Panacea—to kick off this medical thriller trilogy by New York Times bestselling author F. Paul Wilson, author of the Repairman Jack series and winner of the Career Achievement in Thriller Fiction in the 2017 RT Reviewers' Choice Best Book Awards. Across three books, the ICE Sequence chronicles the way human history and civilization have been shaped by Intrusive Cosmic Entities (ICE) with various agendas. Panacea: A reclusive, terminally ill billionaire hires medical examiner Laura Fanning to research the possibility of the fabled panacea—the substance that can cure all ills. The billionaire's own bodyguard, Rick Hayden, a mercenary who isn't who he pretends to be, has to keep her alive as they race to find the legendary panacea before the agents of a secretive cult can destroy it. The God Gene: Rick Hayden and Laura Fanning of Panacea return to encounter another mindbending scientific scenario. Rick's brother, Keith, a prominent zoologist at NYU, walks out of his office one day and disappears. The only clue they have are his brother's book, which mentions ""the God Gene."" In a globe-spanning mixture of science, mystery, and adventure reminiscent of Michael Crichton, The God Gene takes you to the edge of evolutionary theory and beyond...way beyond. The Void Protocol: Something sits in a bunker lab buried fifty feet below the grounds of Lakehurst Naval Air Station. New York Times bestselling author F.

Rick Hayden and Laura Fanning of Panacea return to encounter another mindbending scientific scenario in The God Gene, the new thriller by New York Times bestselling author F. Paul Wilson. Rick's brother, Keith, a prominent zoologist at NYU, walks out of his office one day and disappears. The only clue they have are his brother's book, which mentions "the God Gene." A million or so years ago, a gene designated hsa-mir-3998 appeared as if by magic from the junk DNA of the hominids who eventually evolved into Homo sapiens. It became a key player in brain development—specifically creativity—and laymen started calling it "the God Gene." Keith had been tracking this gene through the evolutionary tree, and was excited by an odd blue-eyed primate he brought back from East Africa. But immediately after running the creature's genetic code, he destroyed all the results and vanished. Rick and Laura's search takes them to an uncharted island in the Mozambique Channel, home of the dapis—blue-eyed primates whose DNA hides a world-shattering secret. In a globe-spanning mixture of science, mystery and adventure, The God Gene takes you to the edge of evolutionary theory and beyond...way beyond. F.

The view presented in The Internet and Its Protocols is at once broad and deep. It covers all the common protocols and how they combine to create the Internet in its totality. More importantly, it describes each one completely, examining the requirements it addresses and the exact means by which it does its job. These descriptions include message flows, full message formats, and message exchanges for normal and error operation. They are supported by numerous diagrams and tables. This book's comparative approach gives you something more valuable: insight into the decisions you face as you build and maintain your network, network device, or network application. Author Adrian Farrel’s experience and advice will dramatically smooth your path as you work to offer improved performance and a wider range of services. * Provides comprehensive, in-depth, and comparative coverage of the Internet Protocol (both IPv4 and IPv6) and its many related technologies. * Written for developers, operators, and managers, and designed to be used as both an overview and a reference. * Discusses major concepts in traffic engineering, providing detailed looks at MPLS and GMPLS and how they control both IP and non-IP traffic. * Covers protocols for governing routing and transport, and for managing switches, components, and the network as a whole, along with higher-level application protocols. * Offers thoughtful guidance on choosing between protocols, selecting features within a protocol, and other service- and performance-related decisions.

In the past several years, there has been an increasing trend in the use of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) and Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) as well as in the integration of both systems due to their complementary nature, flexible combination, and the demand for ubiquitous computing. As always, adequate security remains one of the open areas of concern before wide deployment of RFID and WSNs can be achieved. Security in RFID and Sensor Networks is the first book to offer a comprehensive discussion on the security challenges and solutions in RFID, WSNs, and integrated RFID and WSNs, providing an essential reference for those who regularly interface with these versatile technologies. Exposes Security Risks The book begins with a discussion of current security issues that threaten the effective use of RFID technology. The contributors examine multi-tag systems, relay attacks, authentication protocols, lightweight cryptography, and host of other topics related to RFID safety. The book then shifts the focus to WSNs, beginning with a background in sensor network security before moving on to survey intrusion detection, malicious node detection, jamming, and other issues of concern to WSNs and their myriad of applications. Offers Viable Solutions In each chapter, the contributors propose effective solutions to the plethora of security challenges that confront users, offering practical examples to aid in intuitive understanding. The last part of the book reviews the security problems inherent in integrated RFID & WSNs. The book ends with a glimpse of the future possibilities in these burgeoning technologies and provides recommendations for the proactive design of secure wireless embedded systems.
