After a Great Upheaval, a new order is established which employs computer logic to maintain world stability. Luan, a young woman of that time, appears to suffer from auditory hallucinations. Once she tells others about the "voices," she is categorized and treated in a prescribed manner according to the diagnosis applied. When Luan speaks about a "Code," her thoughts are dismissed as part of her delusional system. But what if the voices are real? Would any one believe her? Who are the voices and what significance do they play in human history? The path of research scientists, mental health personnel, politicians, and patients overlap as the plot weaves its course. This technique allows me to offer a critique about the mental health field, provide an overview on historical events, and comment upon current political dynamics. The story contains elements of mystery, psychic phenomenon, political intrigue, and hypnotic beauty. It sustains a leve!
