Off the Grid (Rewriting)
Transnational organized crimes run amuck in the Ghost Society. It resides within, beside, and underneath, The Grid--where indifferent citizens live their uniform lives. When a reawakened cult comes to flip the table of power around, two top-rival agencies have to team up in a merger to defend their deep-rooted systems that keep both The Grid and the Ghost Society inline.
During the merger, jittery sophomore thief Iris Alleynne, finds herself skin-close with an artifact as old as time. Now deemed a liability, Iris is assigned a bodyguard, Jon Morgan-- a religion-obsessed sea terrorist. Soon, they realize that they have to put aside their differences when they find themselves dragged into a sinister game of cat and mouse--and the predator isn't just looking for a kill.
An exploration of obsessions, human nature, and sociopolitical constructs.
