When the leak of sensitive information is traced back to his computer console, Government official and minor celebrity Danny Parque’s bright future comes crashing down around him.

Found guilty and sent out as a conscripted criminal to fight for an Empire he once loved but comes to despise, horrifying combat leads to capture by the terrorists he is supposed to fear. Danny joins their ranks; persuaded that they are pursuing the same freedom he craves. But the time soon comes when, entangled in a new web of lies, Danny wonders if the price of freedom is his own conscience.

When asked to betray everything – and everyone – he once held dear, the decision must be made…Whose side is he on?
