by Lou Agresta
In an age of augmented reality, love is found in the most dangerous places...
Stranded on Mars, megacorp programmer Derek Tobbit drowns his sorrows in augmented reality sex, only to have his drug-fueled midlife crisis hijacked by a conspiracy that threatens the solar system.
It will take his every hacker skill, the friendship of an illegal rogue AI, and the redemptive power of an impossible love to save them all.
A gritty novel of conspiracy, sex, augmented reality, and star-crossed desire.
