For good reasons, she did bad things.
As the system fractures under the weight of capitalist greed, Imogen Thomas, hacker, part time anarchist and occasional fire-starter, knew she was on the wrong side of the law, but whose side was the law on?
With the unwitting assistance of a not so innocent priest, a sceptical accomplice and a small band of environmental cyber-geeks, Imogen is on a mission to redistribute the vast fortunes of the super rich until the wealthiest man on the planet decides to teach her a terminal lesson.

  “A truly compelling story about a young woman caught up in the collapse of world order.”
When the system breaks down, whose side will you be on?
