Moral Code

Dr. Keira Stetson wants to use her passion for technology to make the world a better place for children. But after a calamitous earthquake nearly destroys everything she’s worked so hard for, she finds opportunity in an innovative technology developed by a mysterious billionaire – the very technology that rescued her from her demolished building.

Will this new technology help Keira advance Elly, her Ethical Artificial Intelligence system, or can it be used to do harm? As powerful outsiders begin to reveal their intentions, Keira and Elly must fight an epic battle to keep this promising technology out of the wrong hands…before it’s too late.
