This is the way the world ends…

It’s bad enough when you suspect your boss is sabotaging your work. It’s far worse when your boss is “Helen,” a temperamental Artificial Intelligence of awesome power and you must rely on her advice to manage Project Maldon, a complex piece of social engineering designed to prevent Armageddon.

In theory, Helen, hurtling over the world in a high orbit space habitat, will absorb data from around the globe, spotting trends too subtle for human minds to perceive, then arriving at cures for the rot infecting the roots of civilization.

But as Project Maldon unfolds, on-site director Edward Wolfe begins to suspect something is wrong with this optimistic scenario.

As Helen’s increasingly odd directives trigger social unrest, murder and finally outright civil war, Wolfe becomes desperate to learn whose side the AI is really on and what her true goals are. Only by peeling away layer after layer of deception does he learn the truth – which is far stranger and more sinister than he had even imagined.
