Framed for the attack by the Phoenix Club, a powerful and conspiratorial secret society, Peter embarks on a mission to clear his name. Aided by a motley cast of accomplices with their own suspect histories and motivations, he seeks answers and vengeance in a world that bristles with mystery, conspiracy, and bio-digital technology that we, in the real world, will soon see realized.
A noted and well-connected futurist, PJ knows of what she writes, and she stares down its implications with an unblinking fascination and a blistering pace that belies her status as a first-time novelist. But whereas many authors of techno-thrillers—from Mary Shelley to Michael Crichton—are motivated by an ambivalence about what our evolving science portends, PJ positively revels in it. She asks not “What if?” but “How soon?”—and, ultimately, “What will we become?”
I’m frankly honored to introduce this distinctive new voice in science fiction with one of those very rare books that I desperately wish I could read again for the first time. Thankfully, the author is hard at work on the sequel.
