Jonathan Sniper è sempre stato alla ricerca dello scoop del secolo, ma non avrebbe mai immaginato di finirci in mezzo. Tutto precipita una notte, quando si ritrova in mezzo alla strada con una pistola in tasca e i vestiti sporchi di sangue non suo. Non sa come sia arrivato lì: l’ultima cosa che ricorda è che stava aiutando uno sconosciuto a sfuggire a dei malviventi. Un uomo che, nei suoi ultimi istanti, gli ha inoculato qualcosa. Da quel momento, il buio. Adesso è lui a ritrovarsi braccato, non solo dalla Polizia, ma anche da misteriosi individui che cercano di catturarlo con ogni mezzo per recuperare ciò che gli è stato affidato senza il suo consenso. Qualcosa che ora gli sussurra nella testa, a volte consigliandolo, a volte ostacolandolo, addirittura prendendo il comando del suo corpo: una coscienza estranea, artificiale, che rivendica la sua presenza, ripetendo "Io sono Jonathan". Tra vuoti di memoria, inseguimenti, inganni e alleati insperati, Jonathan dovrà capire cosa nasconde dentro di sé prima ancora di svelare i misteri che lo circondano. E scoprirà a sue spese che, se da un lato un’intelligenza artificiale non conosce le emozioni, dall'altro la natura umana, sotto la patina dell’etica e della morale, è la più brutale che esista al mondo.
