Dr. Gideon Wolfe, a renowned criminologist and professor at New York's John Jay University, is hired by the widow of a murdered special-effects wizard to track down her husband's killer
Summary
The year is 2023. Much of the world is very wealthy as a result of the triumph of information technology but horrifying poverty still grips many countries. There is a tremendous black market for weapons--including nuclear devices. The plague of 2006 wiped out 40 million people, the crash of 2007 ruined many national economies. The assassination of American President Emily Forrester in 2018 traumatized the nation. The Internet remains the main source of information, bombarding everyone with news, rumors and allegations 24 hours a day
