All over Kansas City, androids are behaving strangely-with acts of vandalism and violence, one even resulting in an accidental death. Simon and Lucas are on the case, but Lucas is disturbed by the implications. Is there a common link between the incidents or are they just random aberrations? When Lucas's Maker, Dr. Livia Connelly, is abducted and her assistant killed, the Chief assigns a task force to track down those responsible and stop the android outbreak. Simon finds himself caught between a partner gone rogue in his determination to stop it and higher-ups concerned about increasing public scrutiny of their only android officer. Common Source -- The next action packed chapter in the John Simon Thrillers arrives from Bryan Thomas Schmidt (Predator, The X-Files) the Hugo-nominated, national bestselling author of Simon Says.
