Denver wakes up in a lush, green World — alone, and with no idea where he is or what this World might hold.
Elsewhere, on the outskirts of Glasgow City State, Haze, one-time hacker, wakes up in the bowels of a run-down estate. He is blind and destitute after a disastrous job five years before left him eyeless and on the run from the most dangerous men in the country. Haze is given an ultimatum — he either carries out one last job, for which he will have his eyesight restored as payment, or he will be killed.
It is Haze’s task to break into the virtual World that Denver inhabits and retrieve a piece of information that could affect all their lives.
What no-one could prepare for is the very nature of the Host itself, a creature so advanced that not even the people who created it know what it is capable of.
Thrust together, Denver and Haze attempt the impossible, to steal the thoughts of a machine so advanced, so strange, that its very mind is a nightmare. So it is that Haze’s one last job suddenly turns into a fight for survival.
Neither of them can guess what will finally happen when they confront the Host at the heart of its mind, where reality ceases to exist.
It is everywhere but no place . . .
