A DARKLY COMIC TALE OF WAY-TOO-HIGH TECH. Merrit Kinder's mid-life crisis turns into a crash. She's been struggling to make eugh money (and meaning) to live on, in a profession she longer loves. On a whim she does something so bizarre it destroys her business. Worse, she doesn't much care. Her loved ones think she should get her head examined. Instead she gets caught up in a solo pursuit to expose a pervasive but largely invisible evil. The chase leads her into the hands of a particularly obxious band of captors: high tech-wielding masters who don't like her any more than she likes Them. Or do They? Their mix of cruel and kind methods is confusing, and Their real purpose is impossible to kw. What's clear is that They want to show Merrit exactly how and why Their sky-high tech makes them essential to survival and the end of everything worth living for. And They're taking her along on Their ride into Fresh Hell. Adult language.
