Detective Frank Logan is assigned a rather peculiar mission: Ada, a revolutionary artificial intelligence, has disappeared from the airtight Silicon Valley lab in which she was locked. Ada was designed to write romance novels, but she has bigger ambitions. She speaks, jokes, picks up on emotions, and has her sights on the Pulitzer Prize.
What Frank discovers about the powers and dangers of technology during his investigation shakes him to the core. So much so that he begins to wonder: should Ada really be found?
