Charles Soule brings his signature knowledgeA??and warinessA??of technology to his sophomore novel set in a realistic future about a brilliant female scientist who creates a technology that allows for the transfer of human consciousness between bodies, and the transformations this process wreaks upon the world.
Inside a barn in Ann Arbor, Michigan, a scientist searching for an AlzheimerA??s cure throws a switchA??and finds herself mysteriously transported into her husbandA??s body. What begins as a botched experiment will change her lifeA??and the worldA??foreverA?¦
Over two decades later, all across the planet, A??flashA? technology allows individuals the ability to transfer their consciousness into other bodies for specified periods, paid, registered and legal. Society has been utterly transformed by the process, from travel to warfare to entertainment; A??Be anyone with AnyoneA? the tagline of the company offering this ultimate out-of-body experience. But beyond the reach of the law and government regulators is a sordid black market called the darkshare, where desperate A??vesselsA? anonymously rent out their bodies, no questions asked for any purpose - sex, drugs, crime...?r worse.
Anyone masterfully interweaves the present-day story of the discovery and development of the flash with the gritty tale of one womanA??s crusade to put an end to the darkness it has brought to the world twenty-five years after its creation. Like Blade Runner crossed with Get Out, Charles SouleA??s thought-provoking work of speculative fiction takes us to a world where identity, morality, and technology collide.
