A Hatchett Report Investigation . . . Astonishing futuristic imagery of the human race and a planet just beginning to right itself. A terrifying vision of what can go wrong in a world without transparency.
It’s 2036, an age of global water conflict and controlled media. A blacklisted journalist finds herself at a perilous crossroads between her explosive past and the future of humanity. Truby Goodman is relocated to Americas Sector N3-24F, the defunct Old Faithful Inn in Wyoming, isolated with four companions she knows little about. Once one of Interpol’s most wanted, she is now bound by a plea agreement not without consequences. Goodman is haunted by the memories of a child she loves that is one of three Alpha Generation geniuses chosen to design a solution to end the international water crisis. The Global Security Council’s WREN project soon becomes plagued by off-gridders who oppose it and a rogue darknet underground news outlet. When WREN is compromised during an opening ceremony live broadcast, the world is suddenly plunged into a global state of emergency. Questioning the authenticity of media reports, Goodman risks revealing her true identity as she races to expose the greatest coup ever attempted. Confronting the impossible in search of redemption, one journalist will dare to rewrite human history—centuries in the making.
