The dangers of rapid developments in technology, along with climate change, are themes explored in this book through the story of a journalist, Jay, and his companion, Cindy, a photographer. They try to bring stories into the public domain which are being played down by the authorities, through the publications of the mysterious Hermes. He sends them on a series of missions which turn out to be both eye-opening and dangerous.
Set over a period of around forty years and ending up in the year 2044, the world becomes an increasingly worrying and frightening place, where control of the internet means control of the world.
As the years go by, Jay and Cindy, along with Hermes, find it increasingly difficult to speak openly about the stories of deception, greed and corruption that they uncover. How will the world look in 2044, and how will the human race survive on Planet Earth?
