A murder has been committed in Westwood. Joseph Marshall, a newly graduated NextGen operative is sent to investigate the only suspect - one of the last remaining Fallen. These super-soldiers, the preamble to the NextGen, have mostly died off. Not due to time mind you, but because they became violently insane and had to be stopped by the same government that created them.
Being NextGen is not easy, especially when your forebears became madmen. Society fears you. Your childhood is filled with lessons of math, english, history and learning how not the kill people you love by accident. Worst of all, every NextGen must serve in a massive concentration camp called Sectors.
The Sectors, created over 70 years ago, was created to keep the Northern Alliance's greatest enemy, the Keynosians, under thumb. Like the North, the Keynosians have super-soldiers called, Empowered. Capable of just as much violence and destruction as the NextGen, the Northern Alliance fears the possibility of another war with these powerful foes. So, intent on keeping them contained, Joseph is recruited to police one of the worse locations within this massive prison camp, Westwood.
With a Fallen partner and a murder investigation he must solve, Joseph has his hands full. The last thing he needs to do, is fall in love... with the enemy.
