Politics, military intrigue, and human frailty in the age of nanotechnology.
In the U.S. after Iraq, the economy has slumped and the country reels with unrest. Ed Grendil, wealthy from developing a spy chip, advocates a reform party to give health and catastrophic care to all. With him as a presidential candidate, the party becomes wildly successful. His son Carl, indolent photographer of decaying buildings, is lured into a secretive military organization spearheaded by Ed's former colleague, the mentally unstable physicist Robert Sikes. Later, sparked by Sikes' attraction to Ed's wife Lyn, the entire family is drawn into a convulsive intrigue of politics, sex, and death.
