Eric Heber and his wife, Vanessa, are on the cutting edge of technology, using direct connection between the human brain and mecs--tiny insect-scale robots--to explore a whole new world of experience and knowledge. But someone is out to steal this bold new science and pervert it to their own uses. Eric's teenage son Kevin and his friend Taki are caught up in these machinations and must convert their skills at playing with the mecs to the deadly serious business of outwitting the criminals and saving the life of Eric's engaging lawyer, Michelle Lang. Hogan's talent carries the reader from peak to peak in the story, while his knowledge of science and the meticulously drawn Seattle and Puget Sound locales constitute a splendid backdrop for the nonstop action.
