In a world where people become living avatars through accretions of their "cybertype" by watching their personalized Orpheus Chronicles, one individual is suspected to be the Return of the Christ. A computer scientist has developed a truth-seeking path-finder so revolutionary that a race to identify whether he is "the One" builds into a global crisis. Shakespeare's pagan gods emerge from a monument to the Bard, as the planet slides into chaos in the grip of an extraterrestrial media takeover. Mind games will not be enough to save humanity from a vast usurpation of identity.
