Utopia (ISBN 0-385-50668-6) is the first solo novel by Lincoln Child published in 2002. It is set in a futuristic amusement park called Utopia, a park that relies heavily on holographics and robotics. Dr. Andrew Warne, the man who designed the program that runs the park's robots, is called in to help fix a problem. But when he gets there, he finds out that the park is being held hostage by a mysterious man known as John Doe.


Utopia consists of five "Worlds", each modelled after different time eras.

  • The Nexus: A neutral setting between the Worlds.
  • Gaslight: Based on Victorian London.
  • Camelot: A medieval kingdom.
  • Boardwalk: A reproduction of a sea side amusement park.
  • Callisto: A futuristic spaceport above Jupiter's sixth moon.
  • Atlantis: A water park based on the lost continent of Atlantis (in the novel, Atlantis is still under construction, and is seen in the epilogue).

Rides and attractions[edit]

Notting Hill Chase: In Gaslight, this rollercoaster is themed as a runaway midnight carriage ride. In the prologue this ride malfunctions and a boy named Corey is seriously injured.

Professor Cripplewood's Chamber of Fantastic Illusion (HoloMirrors): An advanced fun house that uses mirrors and holograms. John Doe attempts to kidnap Sarah Boatwright in this attraction.
