Summary

Welcome to the Misinformation Age.

A solitary man strides across a helipad tarmac on the top of a massive skyscraper. He is on his way to receive his next mission.

World, Incorporated is one of five supercorporations which, having overthrown governments across the globe in the wake of decades of social unrest and economic turmoil, spend their near-limitless resources to attain total supremacy in the post-national society of 2058.

Sliver is an agent of the latter, and he is very good at his job. But his next mission is not going to go as planned...

This captivating action-thriller follows a conflicted young man along his path to revenge and redemption in the 21st century dystopia. His world is about to change. Will yours?
