Can a dying actor survive being hoodwinked into an alien medical experiment?Will a physician's creation of a virus cure all disease or create untold problems?And what do you do when a comatose girl "wakes up," programmed into an unstoppable killing machine?Ben "Coop" Cooper was a washed-up, alcoholic actor when he signed a contract for medical experiments with a sinister race of alien machine intelligences. The treatment had an unanticipated side effect: Dyrk, an artificial persona that showed up in his head, convinced he was an action hero.Dr. Jessica Acorns has compromised her principles and her Hippocratic Oath, but she may have discovered the cure for everything- except her own fatal disease. Her only hope is to transform herself into the clone of a teenage patient.But that patient, Tycho, has been brain dead and in a coma for many months. The same experiment that gave Coop an intelligent viral echo in his head wakes up the girl and unleashes her as the ultimate, mindless warrior on an unsuspecting domed city on Titan.And then there's Potato, an immortal, blue and green zebra striped alien fuzzball who is the source of the medical experiment's drug and an object of worship by the Box, the robotic intelligences that are calling the shots.The Adrenaline Rush trilogy tells the story of Coop's restoration and redemption as he (with help from Dyrk) confronts the Box, teams up with Jessica to avoid certain death, prevents an innocent girl from killing everyone, and frees Potato from its evil, metal overlords.
