Hard Sci-Fi with a human touch. Cooperation versus hierarchy, circa 2070s.
# Imagine a society without politicians, without corporate secrets, without adverts, without disparity in the spendable wealth of its citizens. Such a community has defied the status quo. It has aroused fear and envy among the powerful elite. It needs extraordinary protection from those who would bring it down.
# Add the cold water of frustrating romance.
# Nyssa has spent years in virtual bondage to a Japanese pimp before she landed at Dog Breakfast, a co-op dedicated to urban security and espionage. She is welcomed despite her woeful past. She begins training as an operative and soon finds the physical hurdles almost beyond reach. But she can't turn back because the co-op has become "home" and if she fails she'd lose her best chance for redemption.

She knew enough to hang back and give him the 1st-move, so she feigned a trancelike pose and concentrated at doing the acrobatic twists and turns. She donned the persona of Miyuki, the would-be holo star, the gal with ambitious plans and forlorn hopes. It was role she could play with eyes closed and half her marbles gone.
> Kazuo began weaving his way closer through the frenzied crowd. He had the physique of a champion kickboxer and the calm aura of a macho stud. Other guys and gals moved aside. Though his gestures weren’t threatening, he had the assurance of Moses parting the Red Sea. The trick was impressive in the midst of a slasher bash.
