In the future, genetically-produced people walk among us. It is Rick’s job to erase this dirty little secret…then, he gets to know one. In HELIX 999, Raymond Chandler’s hardboiled world unfolds in a Philip K. Dick future. Rick is a self-loathing agent for a genetics conglomerate that has clandestinely embedded genetic creations in the public sector while awaiting government approval for their products. Rick’s job is to retire malfunctioning models without raising suspicions. Amanda, his latest case, has somehow discovered that she is a Genome Inc. product. Faced with the prospect of a huge scandal, the CEO puts the squeeze on Rick to find out who tipped-off Amanda. Or else. How far will Rick have to go?
