"You know that Nietzsche thing?” the girl asked, “about what doesn't kill you makes you stronger?
Well, let me tell you, he got that all turned around...”
The girl was dead, and no fooling...
Another Gene Genie taken by her addiction – by a plague tearing the world apart.
Sasha is a cop. Though, now-a-days, he mostly cleans up messes. There are plenty of those. To Sasha, the girl looks like just another mess, until her body mysteriously vanished from the morgue.
Turns out the girl was the daughter of some rich and powerful East Coast NeoCon...
Turns out the girl is a mess that even Sasha can't easily sweep under the rug...
Before long, a Federal occupying army has descended on Seattle, hellbent on a roots-to-branches cleansing of America...
Turns out the girl is one serious mess, indeed.
But a deeper mystery lurks behind the girl's death. A mystery that connects the Geneing epidemic with an obscure doomsday cult and the last, encrypted novel of a long dead, half-forgotten sci-fi novelist.
