Ellie Quin has escaped the tedium of life on her father's farm to the domed main city of her home world – New Haven. A noisy, colourful, over-crowded city filled with ditto-heads and limp-chiks, the dregs of society watching day-time sopa-drams on the toob. A place where crime is rife and a naive young woman can too easily become a victim and a statistic.
But with the help of her new found friend and fellow cube-chik, Jez – street-smart, head strong and incredibly fregging foul-mouthed – there's a hope of a chance the pair can find a way off world.
But will they find a way off world before a ruthless killer – hired by 'the Administration' to track down Ellie - finally zeroes in on her?
