Detective Lieutenant Doré Konstantin is up against it.

Konstantin is Chief Officer in charge of TechnoCrime, Artificial Reality Division. It sounds better than it is - in fact, the AR Division consists of three people and a case load of nearly impossible to solve crimes.

Now, as if handling her heavy case load almost single-handed weren't bad enough, she's got a stalker to deal with.

A woman named Susannah Ell claims that she is being stalked by her ex-husband, Hasting Dervish. It seems implausible at first - Dervish is an extraordinarily rich and powerful man, who should have better things to do. But as Konstantin starts to look into it, she discovers that it's not quite so impossible to believe: Dervish has traded places with an Artificial Intelligence, and is busy committing crimes no one has ever thought of before.

Artificial Reality is a new and separate country, with rules and customs alien to the Real world ("as the screens were obliged by law to remind you before each and every session in AR, nothing was true, everything was a lie, and all of it in billable time").
