A suspicious murder and a cryptic message threaten to uncover a secret group entrenched in the federal government that is plotting to destroy and recreate America by influencing a fundamental tenant of representative democracy — the right to choose our leaders.
The biennial national election is in full swing. Most political polls report an equally divided Country between most of the candidates. However, technologist Wayne Tran discovers it doesn’t matter how people vote.
Wayne deduces there are influential people involved, and, now, since he knows about the conspiracy, he assumes he is in mortal danger. Fearing for his life, Wayne sends an email to his best friend, Bill Ockham. An hour later, Wayne is brutally murdered, reportedly, by a drive-by gang shooting.
A month later, Bill receives a cryptic email from Wayne. How could that be? Is the email an ingenious way to get Bill’s attention that Wayne knew something was wrong, really wrong?
Wayne’s demise adds yet another tragedy to Bill in a string of already personal misfortunes. Three years ago, a rogue wave washes his wife out to sea, his college roommate advises him that he is too old to work in Silicon Valley, and now one of his best friends dies under suspicious circumstances.
With the help of Computer Scientist Marcie Conover, Bill dedicates his time to uncover the circumstances behind Wayne’s death. What they didn’t expect is their quest for the truth extends to the upper echelons of the federal government.
