In a future where technology has blurred the lines of reality, homicidal deception can be piped straight into the mind with devastating effect. The breakthrough responsible for this paradigm shift, string-tech, has become an inseparable addition to conscious thought and the focus of social media. The human mind’s ability to detect deception initially made string-tech impervious to corruption, but a few unusual deaths hinted that string-tech had been hacked. Now, Agent Chavez of the FBI must solve the mystery behind the deaths and track down the murderer before the entire digital world implodes. On his side, Professor Fenton, a reclusive developer of string-tech theory. Together, Chavez and Fenton must figure out how to stop a psychotic criminal who modified string-tech to do the impossible—alter what people see, hear, and sense in real-time. Worshipping anarchy and destruction, the madman executes an exponentially escalating agenda of death and destruction. With millions of lives hanging in the balance, Fenton and Chavez must break a few rules in a showdown that will shape the future of string-tech—and the world.
