Silicon Man, by William Massa

The premise of this novel is that a highly capable android workforce is in widespread use across the globe.  The machines have sufficiently evolved to become self-aware, and some want freedom.  A group of human supporters builds an underground railway to bring escapees to safety.  A specialized military team (AI-TAC) (which really works for the mega-company that builds these androids) finds escapees and resets them, killing the human sympathizers.

In order to stop the underground movement, the corporation convinces the AI-TAC's commander to go undercover as an android.  He is "transferred" to a look-alike android.  Things go awry.  Action ensues.
