The world is under attack. An unseen entity has risen from the debris of ancient Babel to haunt the world of today. The Code rules all with a technological grip of power. Can it be broken or is the world doomed to the slavery and oppression of one unreasoning thought?
John Kilroy just wants to be left alone on the island that he was exiled to by the Agency for Good. Back in the real world he’s looked at as a monster guilty of the worst of crimes. Doesn’t matter anymore anyway, as the world is safe from his anger, as long as he stays on his island. But what he doesn’t know is that the world in his absence has changed radically. Nations have fallen and a new world order, the Code, has risen to take control over all who oppose them. The Code controls all communication, all utilities, all commerce, in short everything that made the world a vastly different mixture of identities. The Code seeks to destroy all thought other than what is to be found in its own binary thought and that of the will of its masters, who trace back to the first uprising of man to install universal thought and language, The Tower of Babel. To that end the Code will stop at nothing to achieve its manifest destiny of universal oneness. No atrocity is too great to be done to achieve its objective. Many atrocities have already been committed against humanity. Suddenly John once viewed, as an unreasoning vicious brute is the only one suited for the task of surviving a trip through hell to find the one person left on the planet, who stands the best chance at breaking the Code. John couldn’t care less about the world. It rejected him so he rejects it, but the mission if he chooses to accept it, does offer him what he desires most in life. All he has to do is save her first.
