Synthetic Saints
Jason Rolfe
Alex Hargreaves is being haunted by the past. But the
ghosts that plague him are born of science, not
superstition. As a Security Specialist for the ISA, Alex has
a memory implant that allows instantaneous access to
recall facts and figures with unfailing accuracy, but cannot
move past the painful sense of death and abandonment
made manifest by the tragic loss of his wife and
daughter. Those memories, like all the memories within
his mind, remain excruciatingly present.

When communication with an isolated Deep Space
Observatory is lost, Alex and his synthetic partner,
Persephone, are sent to investigate. The Cochrane is a
small observatory tucked within a pocket of relative
inactivity. A single data analyst runs it on a six-month
rotation. Six months in the emptiness of space can feel
like an eternity. Depression is a common problem.
Suicide and accidental death are not unheard of at
stations like Cochrane. Alex and Persephone are sent to
learn which of these fates has found Amanda Hayes.
