The Grid can give you everything you ever need, except a way out.

Vance Nolan has fallen on hard times. Dishonoured, jailed for tech-theft and disowned by his family, he now works as a junker in a machine graveyard.

Life couldn’t get any worse. Until it does.

Pursued for reasons he does not understand, Vance has only one option: to remove himself from the Grid—the worldwide network that encompasses all aspects of modern living—in an attempt to thwart those who want him dead.

As the Grid closes in around him, Vance will make a discovery about his past that will not only change everything he thought he knew about himself, but about the world around him as well.
