Hiram Montgomery is an ordinary man, until three events collide which change everything. Hiram's beloved wife Sarah dies... he is diagnosed with a terminal illness... and he scoops the lottery rollover, winning millions. He decides to fulfil his dream and use the vast fortune to buy a boat on which he can spend his remaining days. Inspired by Star Trek, Hiram commissions a ship that is like no other. The Adongiva project pushes the boundaries of technology, but even so, Hiram is still unprepared for the staggering secret he learns about Adongiva's computer, and how clever artificial intelligence can be.
