The truth is only the beginning.
When a man is murdered on the Noah, a city-sized spaceship that is half-way through an eight-hundred-year voyage to another planet, his body is so ruined that his identity must be established from DNA evidence.
Within hours, however, all trace of the crime is swept away, hidden as though it never happened - a strange occurrence in a world where deeds, and even thoughts, cannot be kept secret.
Hana Dempsey, a mid-level bureaucrat who has been genetically modified to use the Noah's telepathic internet, begins to investigate. Her search for the truth will uncover the impossible: a serial killer who has been operating on board for a lifetime, if not longer.
And behind the killer lies a conspiracy centuries in the making...
