Overview

Imagine a device that would allow you to spy on anything, anywhere, at any time. Imagine being able to discover secrets buried for decades and what people would do with such a device, if they had sole use of it for decades. Then what would happen, if knowledge of this technology leaked. What would governments and intelligence agencies do to obtain this technology? And what might others do to keep it secret?



This is a story about the government, the military, intelligence agencies, and their quest for power. Some want the technology to uncover secrets to control people; others want to acquire information to sell; others want to use the device for very personal reasons. Conflicting groups face off with one another and vie for ownership of this very unique tool.



This is a story about ethics, identity theft, good intentions, and our basest behaviors. Throughout the book, themes and topics about the power of technology, crime and punishment, law and justice, anonymity, and vigilantism shape a techno-thriller unlike any you have read before.



After all, new discoveries of this magnitude can't remain secret forever.
