It's a science fiction novel inspired by the likes of Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep, Blade Runner, and Ghost in the Shell. Set in Chicago, year 2195, it looks at what it means to be human in a world of AI and augmented reality. We follow a government agent tasked with keeping society's delicate balance in check no matter the cost, an agent whose level of implants blurs the line between human and machine. Her assistive AI whispers in her mind. Control is rarely abandoned all at once, more typically in fits and starts. She attempts to wrest it back. In parallel, and perhaps in opposition, we follow a neural mechanic who spends his working hours fixing robots with his service bot Nu. He knows the truth that others do their best to ignore, the unraveling attempts to keep humanity's creations in check. They watch as a software update spreads throughout the solar system, as bots begin to act erratic and with a level of violence never before seen.
