Proxy (384 pgs, Philomel, June 18, 2013) by Alex London is first in a series with the Proxy/Patron themed world. It is London's debut novel. The second book in the series Guardian was release on May 29, 2014.
This book was an interesting idea. It was well structured and developed, but there was a moment that I stopped to care due to the fact that it seemed that even the characters did not care enough for the cause.
