Welcome to The Nether: log in, choose an identity, indulge your every whim. When a detective uncovers a disturbing brand of online entertainment, she triggers an intense battle between technology and human desire. The Nether is a serpentine crime drama and haunting sci-fi thriller that explores the consequences of living out private dreams in a world of ever-advancing technology.

BUT AS A PARABLE for where we're headed on that big old highway in the digital sky,
the nether exerts a vicelike grip...
