Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

In the future, AI are everywhere - over half the human race lives online. But in the Caspian Republic, the last true human beings have made their stand, and now the repressive one-party state is locked in perpetual cold war with the outside world.

Security Agent Nikolai South is given a seemingly mundane task: escorting a dead journalist's widow while she visits the Caspian Republic to identify her husband's remains. But Paulo Xirau was AI, and as Nikolai and Lily delve deeper into the circumstances surrounding Paulo's death, South must choose between his loyalty to his country and his conscience.
