In a world where the government knows the daily actions of every man, Jake is autonomous. Allison Granger is the most successful prospector in the asteroid belt. Offworld Mining, the powerful prospecting and mining empire will stop at nothing to get her secret. Erick Reichter is a descendent of the pioneer Reichter who opened the asteroid belt. His influence and economic strength are spreading throughout the solar system. But Reichter is not content. Jake's ship, Illusion sails on solar winds near the speed of light. It is home to an organic artificial intelligent computer named Dana. In the future, the boundaries between the real and the artificial become blurred.
