Imagine a place where improving your mind and body through augmentation is the key to success. this is where Stanley Gabrels is from; a journalist hard wired to the very data stream he posts articles to. A society obsessed only with cutting edge technology, with every bit of information, culture and art at their fingertips, broadcast directly into their brain via Adam, an advanced artificial intelligence designed to oversee its users and streamline life itself. Those who can't afford such improvements live beneath the fury, in forgotten streets that siphon what they can from above to survive. the day after a wanted criminal is killed in those streets, Gabrels begins to experience strange dreams, alarming changes in behavior. As his mind deteriorates, Gabrels begins to realize someone else is inside his mind with him, fighting for control. Can he regain himself from the man inside who is slowly tearing his life apart? Who is responsible for this in a city where your every move is monitored?
