When reluctant hero, Steve Payton, receives an encrypted email by accident he ends up losing sleep. But not as much sleep as when he decides to investigate further.
Soon Payton and Janet Phillips, a cryptographic specialist he enlists for help, realize that nothing is, as it seems. The email is setting up someone for a “hit”; Janet and Steve are plunged unwittingly into a quagmire of betrayal, political intrigue and assassination.
Payton and Janet desperately attempt to piece the puzzle together. To do so they have to try to figure out who’s important enough to have a five million dollar bounty on his head, and then can they defuse the crisis that’s facing the nation before it’s too late.
