Sparcity, a future dystopian city-state surrounded by a mysterious no man’s land called The Stretch… Ancient mysticism on a collision course with advanced quantum technology… A ruling elite of government ministers vying for power… All-pervasive technology distracting the populace from the cancers of overpopulation and environmental collapse… Against this backdrop, the paths of a corrupt shaman, a computer scientist, a clairvoyant prostitute, a sociopathic contract killer, and a machiavellian government Minister are set on a collision course by forces beyond their understanding, and more than their lives is at stake.
