After bloody civil unrest, environmental disaster, and the Third World War, benevolent corporations have replaced governments and delivered peace, prosperity, and equality to a grateful human race.
Max Carmichael is an agent in the Cryptics Bureau, whose duty is to protect the corporations that govern the world. But when he’s given a secret mission to find a mysterious woman linked to acts of sabotage, he discovers she was part of a MIM*X experiment that links human brains to artificial intelligence. Evan Lord, the enigmatic and powerful CEO of the MIM*X corporation, wants to shape society into a harmonious blend of humans and robots using neural implants. Carmichael soon realizes his involvement is no accident, and he’s forced to choose between duty and morality as rogue outliers plot to take down MIM*X.
And the woman he is ordered to destroy causes him to question not only his own existence, but that of the entire global society as well.
