Part of the Stand Alone Stories
Research scientist Samantha Bryton lives on the beach and conducts cutting edge research in artificial intelligence, or AI. Her life changes dramatically when she helps Turner, an injured stranger who washes up on her beach. She has no idea he has escaped from an experiment run by Charon, a practitioner of illegal android research. Sam and Turner soon find themselves on the run from the deadly Charon–and only an underground group of rogue AIs can help them.
“The plot is an epic chase across a near-future landscape, enlivened by twists, complicated puzzles to solve, plenty of intriguing technology, and a strong element of romance.” —Christine C. Menefee, Fairfax County Public Library, VA
