Summary
San Francisco, 2017. In an alternate time track, Hillary Clinton won the election and Donald Trump's political ambitions were thwarted. London, 22nd century. Decades of cataclysmic events have killed 80 per cent of humanity. A shadowy start-up hires a young woman named Verity to test a new product - a 'cross-platform personal avatar' that was developed by the military as a form of artificial intelligence. Meanwhile, characters in the distant future are using technological time travel to interfere with the election unfolding in 2017..

Summary
Verity Jane is hired to test a digital assistant that is accessed through a pair of ordinary glasses for a San Francisco start-up. One hundred years in the future and a different timeline, Wilf Netherton works amid survivors of the slow and steady apocalypse known as the jackpot. His employer can look into alternate pasts and nudge their ultimate directions. Verity has become his boss's current project, which will lead to their own version of the jackpot.
