The second book in the Virex trilogy.


Hal Halliday runs a missing persons business in mid 21st century New York. It is a city that is drowning in refugees after terrorist outrages have left much of America a radioactive wasteland.

People colour their grim lives with endless hours spent in VR. It is an addiction which has made VR magnate Sergio Mantoni a multi-millionaire. But now Mantoni faces a threat from a guerilla group called VIREX, who are dedicated to ending the false promise of VR. And when Hal accepts a job to look for the missing sister of a Holodrama star, he find himself drawn into the complex world of VR and VIREX ...

Hal Halliday's partner Barney Kluger is dead and Hal is keeping the business going without really knowing why. The only person who needs him and who keeps him going is the streetgirl who brings him free meals from her noodle bar. But then a holodrama star approaches Hal to find her sister and Hal is drawn into the world of dreams set up by VR magnate Mantoni.
