In the not-too-distant future, intelligent things are recognized as sentient beings, but do they have the same rights as humans? And what about the free-floating Intelligents deep within the internet? Thompson Jennings is a man with unique problems and unique abilities. He can interface between the human and machine worlds, acting as a go-between in labour negotiations and other disputes. But when one his clients, a sentient taxicab, is murdered, his problems multiply and his abilities are stretched to the limit.
"The Internet of Things! Self-driving cars! Artificial intelligence! Oh, and murder, too. Fiona Moore is a terrific guide to our brave new world in this crackerjack, fast-paced, and engaging novel." (Robert J. Sawyer, Hugo Award-winning author of Wake)
