Join the savviest P.I. in futuristic Washington D.C. Cybil Lewis on the intricate case through the shadowy underworld of human engineering. When a young college student is murdered while pretending to be a genetically engineered hatchling, Regulator Daniel Tom thinks it's a hate violation the district would just as soon ignore than spend currency on the investigation. He recruits Cybil to investigate the Human Rights League, an organization devoted to the purity of human beings.
Soon, Cybil sinks into the seedy underbelly of propaganda, politics, and the price of poverty in the Divided States.
