I first became aware of Daniel Suarez through an interview on the podcast Triangulation. I picked up his first novel, Daemon, and enjoyed it. Influx is a later novel with in interesting premise.
Jon Grady is a relatively obscure physicist who has a major breakthrough creating a gravity mirror. The first few pages make an attempt at describing it but don’t be concerned about understanding. The details or not the point. Early on, we find that there was a government agency that is tasked with suppressing major finds like this. But it turns out to be a rogue agency that oversteps its bounds. Grady refuses to cooperate with them and pays a price.
I won’t spoil the plot any more, but I do recommend Influx.
