"Science fiction has now become science fact in this story of the merging of humans and machines," according to SkinDiver press notes. "The lead character, Makeeda, goes to MIT, graduates with honors and is invited into a futuristic think tank where she and her boyfriend T.C., also a scientist, write the ultimate code. Makeeda uses her beauty, sensuality and intellect to become a phenomenon on her vastly popular and innovative website. She soon gains international acclaim, earning the moniker 'the Oprah of the Internet.' Unfortunately, that acclamation leads to murder."
