John Turing is the world's greatest hacker. Or so he thinks.
It took months to prepare the hack of corporate giant EnGen.
It only took seconds for someone, or something, better and faster to shut him down and backtrack him.
But for someone like Turing, mere seconds is a lifetime. And in that lifetime, he saw something he wasn't supposed to see; something no one was ever supposed to see.
Fleeing for his life from both the FBI and EnGen, he turns to the only person he believes can protect him; and forges a temporary alliance with a trained assassin named Samantha Leigh.
When the Chinese wade into the fight, Turing and Leigh realize they need to work together if they are to survive - he the brains, she the muscle.
As the pieces come together with the help of a surprising ally inside the FBI, Turing and Leigh realize they are fighting a war in which the stakes are so high they cannot afford to lose.
The plot hatched by EnGen is nothing less than total control of the world's digital landscape - a hack of monumental proportions, and the clock is ticking.
Even it Turing could prevent it, would he? Society had never done him any favors.
