Seeking to reestablish herself after a professional debacle, Katherine Murkowitz joins a small, eccentric electronics firm. The firm%u2019s sale to a Chinese company begins a whirlwind of layered deceptions, international intrigue, and subtle romance, as the potentially world-saving discovery of Keith Sutter, the firm%u2019s founder, becomes the focus of two great nations.

The revelations continue in Emergence.
