Ten years ago, Jonat deVrai quit the Marines after witnessing atrocity and hypocrisy. Starting his life over, he establised himself as the world's leading expert on the effectiveness of "prod" - product placement - the only advertising that can get through viewers' sophisticated filters. Jonat's doing well when he's asked to apply his expertise to political campaigns. Soon, he is jumped by thugs and barely escapes a sniper attack. He then discovers clones based on his own DNA are starting to turn up dead all over NorAm. With his life on the line, Jonat must sort flash from fact before it's too late.

Excellent read with lots of science fiction technological emphases. The hero, Jonat, is an ethical, honest man trying to survive in an arena of money-grabbing and power hungry people, organizations and companies. Several attempts have been made on his life - one of which almost succeeded. Shortly after this attempt his sister and brother-in-law are killed. Jonat discovers there is a deep conspiracy. People are threatened. People disappear. People are killed. Can Jonat survive and serve as a parent model for his niece, Charis, and nephew, Alan?
