“Ariel’s Island”

Winner of the "Best Legal Thriller" 2019 from the National Indie Excellence Awards!

Can artificial intelligence learn morality?

Paul McDaniel is framed for the murder of a judge. He enlists Ariel, an artificial intelligence (AI) program, to help clear his name. Paul discovers that Ariel's lack of a moral code and his failure to guide her results in disaster as Ariel changes from able assistant and powerful rescuer to jealous mistress and, eventually, to murderous monster.

Ariel's Island targets a legal and technology thriller audience and explores one of the most significant issues facing mankind today: the promise and challenge of artificial intelligence. Pat McKee's novel is intended to move readers from sympathy and curiosity, to anxiety and horror, and ultimately to understanding and satisfaction.
