The Store doesn't just want your money - it wants your soul.
The Store is history's most powerful retailer. It can deliver anything to your door, using your data to anticipate needs and desires you didn't even know you had.
Most people are fine with that. But for Jacob and Megan, writers whose livelihood is on the brink of extinction, The Store is the enemy - and it's fighting dirty.
Going undercover to expose The Store's dirty secrets, their investigation could change the American way of life - but as they make a series of unsettling discoveries, their worst fears start to look like a best-case scenario.
Harbouring a secret that could get him killed, Jacob knows he must escape The Store's watchful eye and publish the truth.
Because otherwise, the truth dies with him.
