Short Description:
   

Move over James Bond—you've just met your match!

Hays Baker and his wife, Lizbeth, possess super-human strength, exceptional intelligence, stunning looks, a sex life to die for, and two beautiful children. Of course they do—they're Elites, endowed at birth with the most advanced genetic enhancements available. Elites are the pinnacle of evolution; the triumph of man's ambitions. The only problem in their perfect world are the humans! And their toys!

Now comes the most unbelievable shock of Hays Baker's life. Suddenly he's on the other side of the gun, experiencing a life he'd never dreamed possible—and fighting to save humans everywhere from extinction. And not only that. Hays and Lizbeth just might lose their perfect family.

James Patterson's Toys is a thriller on a hyper plane, with a hero to rival both Bond and Jason Bourne.

  AudioFile Magazine
      It's the ultimate war--humans against machines. The world's fate lies in its outcome, and Hays Baker is caught in the middle. As a brilliant, tough, intelligence agent, he finds himself between diametrically opposed sides that are fighting for control. Narrator Matthew Bomer puts listeners in the middle of the battle as Hays races in futuristic cars, battles man and machine, and frantically tries to survive. Bomer excels at creating voices for the many people and androids Hays meets. He gives a slightly seductive voice to a French resistance fighter, uses grunts to characterize various colleagues at the Agency of Change, and drawls the president's voice. As each character pops up in this futuristic thriller, Bomer is up to the challenge. M.B. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine
