In the far future, robots and human-like Synthetics have become a part of everyday life for the citizens of New Wave City. Detective Max Kincaid’s okay with the robots, but the Synthetics? Not so much.
That becomes a problem after a meeting propels him into a murder conspiracy involving the artificial humans, something that should be impossible. Max soon finds himself working with the machines, and in the process he learns they can be as unique as the humans they emulate.
Who is real, who is Synthetic, and who is the next target? Max finds himself in a race to sort it all out before humanity runs out of time.
