Fifteen-year-old Ani Lee is a skilled hacker researching a strange .wav file that she's downloaded that behaves as no file ever should. Joe Dyson is a 17-year-old American transplant recruited into a secret teen division of the British intelligence service who's looking into the disappearance of a friend caught up in an underground music scene that might be more than it appears. When Ani and Joe's investigations intertwine, they discover that the .wav file and the music are linked - someone's embedding the file into tracks to create a mind-controlled teen army.
My name is Kyle Straker and I don’t exist any more.' So begins the story of Kyle Straker, recorded on old audio tapes. You might think these tapes are a hoax.

And if everything is a lie, does that mean that we are, too? A gripping, fabulously imaginative sci-fi story for older children from debut author Mike Lancaster.
