Cynthia's secret is safe.
Hidden deep in the bowels of Starlight Mansion, Synergy's mainframe is no longer the object of press scrutiny, and life has begun to return to normal. And yet, as she goes about her every day responsibilities, Cynthia knows that something is not right. For the first time since Techrat's virus, she is experiencing memory blackouts and having trouble with her projections. Trying valiantly to keep her degrading physical condition from her friends, Cynthia finds herself haunted by pictures and images that seem to make no sense. After encountering a holographic simulation of the late Jacqui Benton at Misfits Music, Cynthia decides someone else's technology must be involved, and that the vendetta against the Misfits is still very much on. After an encounter with a mysterious blond in a nightclub, Jewel agree that something odd is going on, and the hunt begins for the saboteur.
Meantime, the fur is flying at Rebel Records. Put out by Rory Llewelyn's increasing egoism, Ingrid Krueger is determined to put her colleague firmly back in his place. Enlisting the help of the duplitious Sophie Devereux and the shadowy Techrat, she sets in motion the footings of a scheme to bring down Riot's regime once and for all.
But Techrat's ambitions are far greater - to build his own version of Synergy...
