Lock In
One percent of the victims of a virus develop 'Lock In': millions of victims are fully awake and aware, but unable to move or respond to stimulus. Decades later, in a world shaped by this 'Haden's syndrome', FBI agents Shane and Vann are assigned what may be a Haden-related murder. The suspect is an integrator, one of those able to let the locked in borrow their bodies for a time. If the integrator was carrying a Haden client, naming the suspect for the murder gets complicated. As Shane and Vann investigate, it becomes clear that the real mystery - and the real crime - is much bigger.
