Kane and his companions find themselves pitted against an ambitious rebel named Barch, who finds a way to activate a long-silent computer security network and use it to assassinate the local baron. Barch plans to use the security system to take over the ville, but he doesn't realize he is starting a Doomsday program that could destroy the world.
Kane and friends must stop Barch, the virtual assassin and the Doomsday program to preserve the future....
One man's quest for power unleashes a cataclysm in America's wastelands.
The passage of time hasn't healed the ravages of the nukecaust, but where once there was only the Deathlands, new centers of power loom above the domain of the unwanted, the hellzones of the Outlands. Though the outlanders distrust and hate the rulers of the fortified villes, even they wouldn't dare imagine the megalithic power guiding their destiny.
Born and bred as an enforcer of the villes, Kane is now a renegade who has seen enough of the truth to make him scared for the future. Along with his fellow exiles from Cobaltville, he must unravel the net of lies that has ensnared humanity. Now they must race to reverse an irresistible force unleashed by one man's quest for power.
