"Fiction is a lie through which we tell the truth"--Albert Camus
Peter Valois has a comfortable life. He’s a scientist on a hot project recording brains, sending the files into robots for “conditioning.” Next comes returning the improved brain scans back into animals to fix behavior. Then humans. Staying on the straight and narrow has given him a comfortable life. Until his druggie teenage son forces risk-adverse Peter to stretch his neck out. Too bad his scheme to save his son falls apart when his leading edge, brain recording research sparks a Chinese company to infiltrate Peter’s own laboratory with a beautiful, sex-prone killer. The company will get the technology it needs by kidnapping Peter’s son and demanding a ransom. For Peter it’s either take risks or his son will die.
