A short description--
In the U.S. after Iraq, the economy has slumped and the
country reels with unrest. Ed Grendil, weathy after having
developed a spy chip, advocates a reform party whose
platform is to give health and catastrophic care to all.
With him as presidential candidate, the party becomes
wildly successful. His son Carl, indolent photographer of
decaying buildings, is lured into a secretive military
organization spearheaded by Ed's former colleague, the
mentally unstable Robert Sikes. Using "neurobots," its
members are sworn to destroy presumed enemies or die.
Sparked by Sikes's attraction to Ed's wife Lyn, the entire
family is drawn into a convulsive intrigue of politics, sex,
and death. The book is a fast-paced thriller.
