Mac Savage, a former CIA officer; Marie Kovacs, a former nanotechnology scientist turned missionary; and Kate Chavez, a Texas Ranger investigating a murder, join forces to unravel a global conspiracy that starts with the diamond industry and ends with a plan to eliminate the human race.
The Donovan Group, a high-powered global conglomerate, has used diamond-based technology to create an overarching artificial intelligence, known as ANNE. Using spyware nanotechnology implants, the group's members have interfaced their brains with this super-intelligent AI. They have become virtual super geniuses and physical extensions of ANNE. With each wired-in member ANNE becomes smarter and more powerful. She has one ultimate goal: to save the planet Earth by eliminating the disease that is consuming it--the human race.
Tapping the world's digital backbone to manipulate its millions of loyal disciples, this AI-god turns ordinary citizens into fanatical soldiers. Her deadly agenda will propel Savage, Kovacs, and Chavez to the center of a battle for the survival of our species.
