When agents Phaedra and
Aegeus of New Crete's Intelligent Data Enforcement Agency are tasked to
find five missing Artificial Intelligence students, their single lead
takes them to a notorious hacker known as 'The Cretian.'
With his help, they uncover a terrible truth: Ariadne, one of the students, is involved with a rogue AI program called The Daedalus Project. The AI is out of control, people are going missing, and a great swathe of the world’s data is being secured within its digital labyrinth.
Putting all their trust in the hacker, not only are the agent's careers and the student’s lives in jeopardy, but also the very freedom of the public hangs in the balance. Their only hope lies in The Cretian, a rogue hacker who's only out for himself.
