Mason Floyd’s job is simple: company asset protection and acquisition, no questions asked. An augmented company enforcer, he’s known for taking the straightest path to the objective. Sometimes that’s climbing over bodies, and sometimes it’s blowing up the evidence. Just another day in the syndicates.
He’s good at what he does. It’s given Mason the best looks money can buy, the spacious apartment that only comes with knowing the right people, and top shelf bionics from Apsel Federate. He’s at the top of his game when a gate between worlds opens, spilling a man who can control minds into Seattle. This master of coercion rips away everything Mason holds dear. A world bought by corporate interest turns against him.
Hunted and fresh out of friends, Mason learns that living in the soft line between incentive and crime was always the easy path. Making the right choices could save the world – and his soul. It’ll only cost him everything he’s ever wanted. Can Mason learn what it means to be truly human?
