Engines of Empathy
by Paul Mannering
A computer psychologist, a retired god, and a family secret walk into a building. Then it explodes.
Charlotte Pudding, computer psychologist and recent orphan, is not precisely thrilled with her lot in life (and not just because of the ‘orphan’ bit). Nevertheless, having her routine disrupted by a shadowy corporation, a man who claims to be a retired god, and the secrets of her own family history isn’t a walk in the park, either.
In a world that runs on empathy, Charlotte is going to discover just how far some people are prepared to go to maintain the status quo.
