Steven James, the critically-acclaimed author whom Publishers Weekly has called a "master storyteller" delivers a new thriller where things aren't always as they appear.
30 years in the future, AI is so advanced that humans live alongside robots called Artificials. Kestrel Hathaway needs to come to terms not just with what they know, but what they believe. Is hope even real for them, or just an illusion?
Soon after experiencing a personal tragedy, Kestrel witnesses a terrorist attack and is pulled back into a world of conspiracies and lies that she and Jordan, her Artificial, must untangle. A second, more brutal attack is looming on the horizon. Their best chance of stopping the inevitable is teaming up with the federal counterterrorism agent Nick Vernon.
While the clock is ticking, Jordan is asking questions that Artificials were never meant to ask.
Steven James deftly weaves suspense and intrigue together into a rich, resonant tale that explores faith and what it really means to be human, while providing a glimpse into the future and into our own hearts.
Synapse is an unforgettable, gripping story of dreams shattered, truth revealed, and hope reborn.
