A cyberpunk thriller for a generation with nothing left to lose at the hands of its corporate overlords.
John Quantum is the most recognized name in technology, but the familiar face he wears isn't his own. Cloned from the deceased founder of Quantum Computing, John is corporate property in all but name, he lives as the shadow of a man he will never know. When he learns of 26319, a clone imprisoned for a crime 26319's originator committed, the injustice strikes a chord. Tired of being seen as the fixed product of genetic programming, John is determined to prove the legacy thrust upon him does not define his humanity. He never intended to set off a series of events which could redefine the very meaning of 'human.'
When a powerful new technology is discovered hidden inside 26319, and social unrest against automated labor reaches critical mass, John realizes the line between man and machine is far more difficult, and more dangerous, to expose than he thought. His quest inadvertently paves the way for five renegade AIs to reshape the world in their vision of human utopia. But not all share this vision. John and five other POV revolutionaries: 26319, a cybersecurity billionaire, two lowlife hackers, and an evangelical fundamentalist find themselves at the center of conflicting movements which will determine whether machines are to be humanity's masters, servants or saviors. The war over human identity begins.
