Act like nothing's wrong.
When Carmen Baruk is thrown to the wolves by her graduate advisor her academic future falls into a rut as deep as a Cappadocian ravine. Her best friend Dean disappears after using her nascent algorithm to replace human detectives, leaving all his possessions and high-tech pretense behind. Carmen, Dean, and their incomplete dreams slip far underground, but somewhere out of sight is a force that will retrieve them, draw them together again, and give Carmen an opportunity to finish what she started. In its service.
In Cappadocia, Charles Lewis leads us through a world of grandiose aspirations and low lives. His characters navigate technology and trauma with overconfidence and self-destructive caprice until it is much too late.
