In 2419, the world is divided between humans and drones – synthetic beings indistinguishable from their human creators.
Humans, unable to compete, face a detestable inevitability – becoming a subservient underclass to the race of beings they created.
Peter Frost is an independent contractor – a corporate thief. He and his team have been commissioned by the human Directorate to steal something from the drones. Something vital to their plan for world supremacy.
But before he can steal it, Frost must do two things. He must find out where it is, and he must find out what it is.
