Lance Michaels is prowling through a mansion, foiling security sensors, neutralizing traps, and holding an internal conversation with someone named Robin. As he works, he cycles through a handful of distinctly different personalities--Lance Michaels suffers from multiple personality disorder.

When Lance was a child, his father Jonathan, one of the richest men alive, abused him horribly. Lance's mother Meredeth knew about the abuse but was afraid to step in. Part of the abuse included operations to make Lance taller, stronger, and better looking--the perfect son. In order to oversee Lance's cybernetic implants, the doctors installed nanobots, or tiny robots that can manipulate human cells. As occasionally happens, the nanobots banded together to form a single hive intelligence. When Lance was a teenager, this new AI took the name Robin and learned to communicate with Lance.

At fifteen, Lance knows he's abnormal. He loses chunks of time. He finds himself in strange places with no idea how he got there. Odd objects show up in him room. Voices shout and argue in his head. Eventually, with Robin's help, Lance confronts the fact that he has dozens of people "living" inside his head. He uses the talents of these alternate personalities to formulate a daring escape plan.

As an adult, Lance runs a small security analysis business and has gained a small amount of fame as the only person who can debug nanobot hives. He also spends a fair amount of time evading kidnap attempts from Jonathan, who still wants him back. Eventually, Jonathan sets a nanobot hive loose on one of his own space stations and tricks Lance into boarding. Lance has to use every trick he knows to avoid technology gone wild and, in the process, confronts his past, his parents, and the secrets buried in his own mind.

* You may want a copy of this book in the form of a planar cellulose information retrieval system, i.e. a printed book. They make good gifts, and are more familiar to most of us than electronic copies. But finding a printed copy of a book is sometimes difficult. This section is intended to give you some help by making it easy to use the more common ways of searching.

1 The first column consists of links to the home pages of the biggest suppliers of books by mail: Amazon and Barnes & Noble. These two suppliers have mostly new books, and their new book inventory probably has an overlap of something like 90%, but this does not mean that they both have exactly the same price. Both of them also list used books from outside suppliers, and the used book inventories are usually quite different. ABE Books is a loose grouping of some 17,000 independent bookstores that list their inventory in a common database - most of these are used books that vary from just issued best sellers to rare and antique books.

From all three home pages you can do searches, look at comments, check prices of both new and used copies, look at various formats such as hardback, paperback, eBook formats and much more.

2 The second column has links to Barnes & Noble and Amazon pages describing their new eBook Readers. These have become very popular lately as they allow the purchase of new books and textbooks at prices lower than the printed copies, and in a format that many people find attractive.

3 Clicking on the links in the third column sends you to the supplier along with the ISBN (International Standard Book Number) of the book described on this page if we have been able to find that number. Note that an ISBN refers to a specific edition of a book. Thus a single book might have many ISBNs: Hardback edition, softback, large print, foreign language and so on. Usually the book listing on B & N or Amazon will have links to the other editions that are available.

4 Is our ISBN wrong, or perhaps missing all together. Help us out. Search on B&N and Amazon. If you find one, please let us know. Enter the thirteen (Barnes & Noble) or ten (Amazon) digit number (no dashes) in the boxes above and click on the Submit ISBN button. The numbers shown in the boxes are the numbers we have on file, or zero if we haven't found one.
