Ivy Raven has broken off her pursuit, but HeNRI is still trying to figure out how to deal with Julie and the Beta Suit. One of their researchers, Hong Liu, has discovered that by bombarding the suit with protons, it will very briefly become dark matter before being rendered inert, as a viscous liquid. Of course, the process is fatal to the person the suit is grafted to.
Never suspecting that her home is under surveillance by HeNRI, Julie and Dillon have come back to plan their next move. And HeNRI's forces will be there in fifteen minutes.
