After a catastrophic earthquake devastates the San Francisco Bay Area, the powerful Saul Rabin brings order out of the chaos through an elite force of “peacers” with a license to kill, who enable him to continue to rule the city-state long after its reconstruction. Rabin’s Bay Area Security Service (BASS) has exclusive rights to the coveted antigravity technology developed within its protective bounds, making it the newest world power and a target for threats from outside and power struggles inside. British war hero Michael Ares finds himself in the middle of both when he is brought into the company and discovers mysterious plans for him to become the “true peacer.” His story, set in a future world of aerocars and neural cyberware, is a timeless tale of good and evil, revenge and love, infamy and destiny.
