Silicon Man (Silicon Series Book 1) by William Massa

To complete his mission, he will have to become that which he hates the most… A machine!

A global pandemic has cut the human population in half. An android workforce fills the void left by the devastation. But some of the AIs have grown tired of being slaves. Some want freedom. An underground movement of runaways has sprung up and wages a shadow war with a simple objective — equal rights for artificial people.

As head of the elite AI-TAC squad, Commander Cole Marsalis’ job is to hunt down rogue robots. Now he has been tasked with the ultimate undercover mission — infiltrate the android underground.

“SILICON MAN is an intelligent techno-thriller where the line between man and machine has never been more unclear.” – Nicholas Sansbury Smith, best-selling author of ORBS
