BASS has established and maintained order in the new city-state with a police force of "peacers" who have a license to kill, and the company has developed a cutting edge antigravity technology that is sure to make its leader one of the most powerful men in the world. Michael Ares has recently inherited the throne of BASS, and immediately finds himself marked for assassination by an even more powerful world leader, the Chinese general Zhang Sun. Michael doesn't understand why he was chosen to play this important role, nor does he know why Sun is so determined to see him dead. But to find out, he will first have to survive not just one assassination attempt, but a series of attempts that has never failed to end in the death of the target. His only hope is to entrust his fate to an old friend whose company provides personal high-tech protection that is almost as impressive as the forces arrayed against him. A future world of aerocars, net glasses, and neural cyberware provides the backdrop for this timeless tale of good and evil, complete with violence, love, and revenge.
