Cyberpunk dystopia

“I’ve got all the feelings. And feelings are trouble.”

Dez is different from the other fleshers who scrape a living on the outskirts of Newport. She’s a living quantum computer, the missing link between human and artificial intelligence. If Newport City OpSec knew about her abilities, she’d be dead meat. Or worse.

Dez hacks into OpSec to find out if they know her secret and uncovers a plan to exterminate millions of fleshers. Now their only chance is to risk everything.
