A corrupt Congress rules a drugged-out America, land of slums and malls. But in the underground, a few violent young malcontents will stop at nothing to smash the system…and bring back the Constitution and the President. JOHNNY ZED is their leader…a brilliant strategist and political theorist, always heard but never seen. SHELLY TRACER is his pawn — and his ultimate weapon…a warrior in a world of glitterfolk, oxygen addicts, and genetically modified animen whose ties to the old world hold the key to success. Together, they just may just be able to pull off the greatest coup in history — if their friends don't kill them first!
