In the third book in The Red Trilogy, former army lieutenant James Shelley becomes a black ops sniper working for the Red - a suspected rogue artificial intelligence that is ripped from today's headlines.

James Shelley has left his lover, Delphi, and his companion-in-arms, Jayne Vasquez, with a fortune acquired from a fallen oligarch. They believe him to be dead, and he doesn't try to set the record straight. His long-running question has been answered: There are other soldiers like him who have served the purposes of the Red - and he has accepted his place among them.

As a soldier of the Red he pursues covert missions designed to nudge history away from existential threats - but that doesn't mean the world is growing more orderly. It's only in the froth of a managed chaos that human potential can grow and thrive. Shelley's missions eventually take him into orbit and into conflict with those he loves - Delphi and Jaynie, who are determined to escape the influence of the Red.
