J.L. Cooper is a private investigator hired to look into a recent rash of disappearances. All missing persons are linked to pop travel, a long range transportation device that dominates the travel industry of 2080. Cooper doesn’t wanted the case—until he stumbles onto a video of a pop traveler who turns to dust, sparking a series of murders, attempts on his life, and threats to his brother. Cooper wants to pass off the evidence but knows he’s being watched and can’t trust anyone. And who would believe him? With help from the neurotic genius “Creator” of pop travel and a beautiful Southern charmer, Cooper must expose the deadly glitch and shut it down, or die trying. No problem.
