Following his sudden rise to power and fortune, Tomás Estéban Chen-Diaz must navigate an entirely new world fraught with responsibility, hazards and betrayals. Even as he attempts to put his own personal mark on the family’s corporate legacy, the trauma of his past is slow to heal and he cannot decide how to dispose of his murderous brother, Francisco, who was ruled a clone and stripped of all legal rights.
To complicate matters, Tomas is haunted by the plight of Selena Vasquez-Medina, the beautiful, genetically-perfected model whom Francisco seduced years earlier. Can she be located and ever enjoy a new and safer life? And if found, could she possibly heal from her past mistreatment enough to ever trust Tomas?
To aid him with these challenges, Tomas turns to the skilled American cyborg law enforcer, Owen MacIntyre, who agrees to help neutralize Francisco and locate Selena. But MacIntyre’s abilities are stretched to their limits as he balances the financial and family intrigues of Vibora Enterprises and the Chen brothers—even as his duties at the Northwest Law and Safety Agency require him to dispel a new crisis threatening the region: The discontent festering in the local religious communities.
