From official release/information:
The more things change, the more they remain the same, as we witness in Chris Moriarty's follow up novel to her brilliant debut in Spin State. The new book, Spin Control, makes this point in the Middle East, where Israeli and Palestinians are still at each other's throats in a gridlocked grudge match, amidst which a number of intelligence agencies and other players are scrambling to capture a prize from off world, a genetic virus that might be a weapon of considerable importance. If anyone can understand what it does. Though we get a fair amount of action in with now ex-Major Catherine Li, and her AI consort Cohen, they're not quite at the center of the storm. That would be Arkady, a post-human from the Syndicate, a collection of cloned human lines that have been engineered as advances in humanity, though in what direction it's not always clear.
