His journey to discover the truth of the code leads him across Europe, from London to the depths of Russia, aided by two members of the Secret Intelligence Service, as they race to stem a build up to war. As events unfold, Lior discovers truths about his mind and the origins of the code that have the potential to shake the very foundations of our civilisation and determine the future of our species.

He has a direct connection to the net through wetware implanted in his nervous system and is working to build an afterlife for himself, for his mother, for us all. But when a seemingly malevolent code finds its way into his mind, everything is threatened.
