Beatrice was on a modelling job in Florida when she saw on the news that her sister and parents had been killed in a huge explosion, back home in Scotland.
It’s now been three months and she’s been running all this time, certain her father’s enemies had something to do with the tragedy. The trouble is, she doesn’t have all the facts. Was it an accident, as reported by the media? Is she just being paranoid? Or are there more sinister forces at work?
Along comes Nate. He lands in her life with no explanation of where he’s been or where he’s going. She has no idea if she can trust him.
Together they set off in search of answers, but Beatrice has her guard up, the lessons of her father never far from her thoughts: to plan for every scenario and not trust anyone. Despite her misgivings however, it quickly becomes clear Nate may be the key to figuring out her past—and present. Perhaps trusting him is the only option she has . . .
In the second and final Collective novel, Nate’s navigating a terrifying new world… all without Beatrice this time.
It’s been almost two years since Nate attempted to unveil Panacea to the world, but the hacker’s efforts to bring the truth to the fore seem to have been crushed.
Beatrice is gone from his life, that much is clear. But where? How? Is she ever coming back?
A lone wolf, he’s on the hunt again, seeking answers… a route inside. Something.
An old friend of his, Sadie is a geneticist who might be able to facilitate access to Panacea. She could give him all he needs, if only he could convince her to help him.
The question is, what will it take to convince Sadie? Just what lengths must he go to in order to get inside the Collective’s uber-secretive island complex?
All Nate knows is that he will do what he can, or die trying.
Without Beatrice by his side though, he’s a different person entirely.
Be prepared for a rollicking ride of psychological warfare, dark deeds, underhanded tactics… and one devastating truth you might never see coming.
