Noticing unusual activity on the company server plunges Robert into a high-stakes game of cyber espionage, mayhem, and murder







 New guy Robert Dulaney would have been content spending his time at the office daydreaming about craft brews and baseball, but strange events begin unfolding during his second week on the job. Troubleshooting unusual activity on company servers leads to a high-stakes descent into cyber espionage, murder, and mayhem.

His employer, Advanced Research Technologies, is racing to beat foreign competitors to market with their solar power storage prototype. They have potentially hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue to gain—and, as it turns out, everything to lose.  

 As the day for testing the prototype rapidly approaches, the danger to those involved in the project increases. Robert is forced to leave his lighthearted life behind and focus on protecting the prototype—and keeping himself alive.
