Deirdre is a Linker, a physician-scientist who can sequester illness in a virtual construct known as "the Labyrinth" and restore the terminally ill to perfect health, but only for a day or two. Mali belongs to a group of mind-connecting anarchists who are desperately searching for a cure to an engineered virus that has doomed the group to slow death. After a mysterious meeting, Deidre and Mali will inspire a small band of Linkers, anarchists, and fellow travelers to come to Geneva and carry out an unlawful experiment in defiance of the centralized power of the Medical Guild. Five brave souls, two men and three women-one critically ill-will attempt together to defeat 'the Beast' who inhabits the construct and to achieve what they believe is possible, a greater healing. A novel set in the near future in a world where the insights and discoveries of information technology and neuroscience both enslave us and offer us hope for a new freedom.
