- We can order this
Change is dangerous, technology lethal. So what if our civilization is more advanced than we know?
Particle physicist Jon Grady is ecstatic when his team achieves a major breakthrough: a device that can reflect gravity. Their research will revolutionise the field of physics. But at Grady's moment of triumph, his lab is locked down by a shadowy organisation whose mission is to prevent the social upheaval caused by sudden technological advances - advances they use to retain total command.
They are living in the future we were promised.
Now Grady finds himself in a nightmarish high-tech prison built to hold other rebellious geniuses. Can he and his fellow prisoners escape? And even if they can, is it possible to defeat an enemy that wields a technological advantage half a century in the making?
The dark ages are ending. Our future is here...
