Description

When a shipwrecked stranger washed up on the beach near research scientist Samantha Bryton's home, she was unaware that he was something more than human. He said his name was Turner Pascal-but Pascal was dead, killed in a car wreck. This man only held the remainder of Pascal's consciousness in a technologically enhanced humanoid body. He was, in fact, an experiment by the notorious criminal Charon, a practitioner of illegal robotics and android research. Charon has been secretly copying human minds into android brains, with plans to make his own army of slaves. On the run from this most ruthless criminal, Samantha and Turner seek help from Sunrise Alley, an underground organization of AIs and androids that have gone rogue. But these cybernetic outlaws are rumored to have their own hidden agenda

Professional reviews

"The difference between human beings, artificial intelligence beings, and enhanced intelligence beings becomes a bit blurry at a time in the future when biomechanical enhancements are routine, up to a point. The retirement of Samantha (Sam), a biomech researcher, is totally disrupted when she gets drawn into a web woven by Charon, who is experimenting with such enhancements in extreme ways. Hillary Huber integrates a healthy dose of skepticism in her characterization of Sam, giving her a quality that is fitting for a scientist. As Sam becomes drawn in by Turner, who was created by Charon, Huber moves the character along a spectrum of emotions that are sometimes raw but always under tight control.
