A ThrillereBook - 2019
Commander Gray Pierce discovers his house ransacked, his pregnant lover missing; his best friend Monk's wife, Kat, is unconscious on the kitchen floor, and Kat's two daughters have vanished. Kat is in a semi-comatose state and cannot speak-- until a brilliant neurologist offers a radical approach to "unlock" her mind long enough to ask a few questions. Soon Sigma Force is on a frantic quest for answers to mysteries reaching back to the Spanish Inquisition and to one of the most reviled and blood-soaked books in human history: a Medieval text known as the Malleus Maleficarum, the Hammer of Witches. What they uncover forces them to confront the ultimate question: What does it mean to have a soul? -- adapted from jacket

...I do not deserve to be called a witch... for I am not worthy of such as honor.
“Uncertainty is a key aspect of human reasoning. Without uncertainty, we would never doubt ourselves or our decisions. We would be certain that we’re right all the time. It’s this certainty that can make an AI’s ability to learn turn brittle over time. But if an AI is uncertain and capable of doubt, it can begin to judge itself, to question whether an action or decision will have the consequence it desires and test it more thoroughly.”
“Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” —Arthur C. Clarke, 1962, from his essay “Hazards of Prophecy: The Failure of Imagination”
