In the early 21st century, humanity marveled at its greatest creation: artificial intelligence. They couldn't foresee the consequences of such a creation. Now, in a world where humans must meet specifications to continue living, a man named Caesar emerges. Not meeting specifications - indeed, thinking things no human should - eyes fall on Caesar, eyes that could kill him or lift him up, lead him to tragedy or revolution.
"Patience is a virtue..."
Caesar Wells takes the mantle of The Named's leader, and after six months of intense preparation, begins his assault on The Genesis, intent on destroying the artificial intelligence that enslaves humanity. Others around Caesar have intentions as well, though. Those inside The Named that don't trust Caesar. Those inside The Named that would rather him die than lead. Caesar, focused only on his end goal, can't see the signs of rising insurrection all around him.
"Endless agonising with little action"
John Hilt lives the American dream. His corner office looks out on Dallas' beautiful skyline. His amazing wife and children love him. His father and sister adore him. John has it all. Except every few years, when Harry shows back up. Harry wants John to kill people. Harry wants to watch the world burn.
At 30 years old, Matthew Brand had reinvented the fields of Mathematics and Genetic Engineering. The world stood in awe, celebrating his genius. But when Brand's adopted son, Hilman, was gunned down by four police officers, Matthew Brand discovered a new purpose in life: Revenge. And rebirth for his son.
What would you do if the world burned around you while the sky rained down gasoline? John Hilt fled to Mexico, hoping to escape the police investigation centering only on him. If he could get away for a while, perhaps Detectives Tremock and Merchent would look elsewhere. Perhaps the cops' heat on him would dissipate.
"Who knows what lies in the heart of a man?"
John Hilt's life may look perfect, but his problem is growing; he can't stop killing. And his dead friend, Harry, absolutely loves it. John, lost in this murderous obsession, doesn't see the world collapsing around him. Police officers Alan Tremock and Susan Merchent think they found their man and will do anything to take him down. They're connecting the dots, and realizing wherever John Hilt goes, people die. Only one issue, though: Harry wants John to kill them, too.
