Summary
Where Flynne and her brother, Burton, live, jobs outside the drug business are rare. Fortunately, Burton has his veteran's benefits, for neural damage he suffered from implants during his time in the USMC's elite Haptic Recon force. Then one night Burton asks Flynne to take over a job he's supposed to do. Beta-testing part of a new game, he tells her. Work a perimeter around the image of a tower building; little buglike things turn up, he's supposed to get in their way, edge them back. What she sees, though, isn't what Burton told her to expect. It might be a game, but it might also be murder...

Summary
Whenever she can, gamer Flynne Fisher tries to help her brother Burton, a disabled veteran. So when Burton asks her to beta-test a virtual reality game as part of his lucrative but illegal part-time job, Flynne agrees to sub in. During her shift, Flynne witnesses a murder and soon realizes that she's not playing a game, she's seeing the future. But how? Cutting-edge technology and crossed time lines create an intricately plotted and thought-provoking science fiction story that slowly builds suspense through parallel, yet intersecting, narratives. -- Description by Gillian Speace
