In America, driven to near bankruptcy with crushing foreign debt, the Talos Corporation stands out as a major success story—training soldiers and security forces from around the world and providing logistics and troops for nearly all branches of the United States government. But Talos has another plan in mind—the destruction of the federal system and constitutional law. Three FBI agents are all that stands between Talos’s CEO Axel Price and the subversion of our nation. Nathan Trace, one of a team of four who created and programmed the thinking machines that are about to help Axel Price in his plans for domination, is the unlikely hero who, with Rebecca Rose, must stop the plan at all costs.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Bear balances threat and promise as he weaves his characters’ stories together surely, skillfully, daringly, using exactly the right amount of tension, pulling their threads together into a net that traps and holds his readers captive to his startling yet veracious imagination.” Seattle Times
“Under less capable hands, the extraordinarily complicated plot, numbers of characters, and the constant explanations of future technologies might lead to terminal turgidity, but SF veteran Bear keeps everything whizzing right along to the slam-bang conclusion.” Publishers Weekly
“Charles Leggett helps keep the complicated plot moving with a powerful voice that is rich with sincerity and, occasionally, menace.” AudioFile
“A fast-moving thriller that posits an absolutely convincing and utterly frightening future.” Booklist
