Tzaro Janssen, a seismologist in a next-gen lab in the San Juan Islands, witnesses a meltdown. His girlfriend Therica has become… not herself. Stories like hers are lighting up media around the globe—psychotic breaks, social isolation, explosive violence. And no known cause.
A chilling discovery on Therica’s phablet fractures the world Tzaro knows and propels him into a strange, altered one. At the center is Therica’s obsession, the mega networking platform Wundrus.
With the fates of Therica, his son Derek, and billions of the socially interconnected in the balance, Tzaro and the rag-tag team who join him—Calvin Carmody the professor of ancient languages, Svetla the Bulgarian Guber driver, Wes the old-school programmer, and hardheaded Morgan, rebel with a cause—plunge into a race against madness.
In a future world not so distant, in a cyber cell in the shadowy foothills, the soul snatchers are watching, and waiting.
