"He's watching you but now someone's watching him!"
Meet Jack Tone. Thirty years old. Depressed and lonely. An information analyst in the sprawling Federal security bureaucracy. It's the year 2041, and America is a country ruled by ruthless billionaires and war profiteers. In Jack's America, the aristocrats live in luxurious depravity, while regular citizens struggle for existence. And the politicians just smirk--all the way to the bank to deposit their bribes. The government, far from defending the people, is a quagmire of fumblebuck bureaucracy. But most citizens are so zonked out on "Pharmatainment Tech" (including virtual reality games, interactive security dramas, screwball porn, and spirituality pills) that there is little organized resistance to the tyranny. Jack is barely shuffling through life, uninterested in the sleazy distractions the corporate government feeds the people to keep them sedated. He also hates his job spying on citizens from a dreary office seventeen stories underground. So it's understandable when, in a desperate moment, he decides to join a group of peculiar revolutionaries who call themselves "Faction 9." They are everything Jack is not: impulsive, passionate, unpredictable, conspiratorial, hard-partying, and utterly devoted to a radical and thoroughly un-American imperative: Hatred of Greed is the Salvation of Love. But once Jack goes rogue, he realizes he can't go back. And once Faction 9 decides to take out sociopathic billionaire Gregory Randolph Reid, Jack realizes that only two final cards remain for him in the deck of life: Liberty--or Death!
