Zoey suffered many losses on her way into the Collins household. But she wants to put all that in the rear-view mirror. She's thriving with her life private investigating and bagging bail-jumpers. Recent edition to that routine, Cardinal Machines law enforcement android C001-Oisín -- Ocean -- blends at least as well into the mix as she does into his occasional S.W.A.T. team and F.B.I. assists. For the first time, she's starting to feel like she has a partner in crime. And it's hard to resist making her gorgeous prototype a passion project in her personal life... if that's even possible, though she's pretty sure from the anti-android sentiment on the rise in the U.S.A, it isn't.

And the last thing she needs while they're working their way from ground zero to finding a missing girl, is a dangerous new wrinkle in Ocean's growing fame.
