Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Alex Treven has sacrificed everything to make partner in his high-tech law firm. But then the inventor of a technology Alex is banking on is murdered, the patent examiner who reviewed the innovation dies, and Alex himself narrowly escapes an attack in his own home. Off balance and running out of time, he knows that the one person who can help him is the last person hed ever ask: his brother.

Ben Treven is a military liaison element, an elite undercover soldier paid to “find, fix, and finish” high-value targets in the United States global war on terror. Disenchanted, Ben lives his detached life in the shadows because the black ops world is all he really knows-and because other than Alex, his family is long gone.

But when Ben receives Alexs frantic call he hurries to San Francisco to help him. Only then does Alex reveal that theres another player who knows of the technology: Sarah Hosseini, a young Iranian American lawyer-whom Ben immediately distrusts. To survive the forces arrayed against them, theyll first have to survive one another.

From the Compact Disc edition.

Synopsis:

A smart new thriller from the acclaimed and bestselling author of the John Rain novels.

In Silicon Valley, the eccentric inventor of a new encryption application is murdered in an apparent carjacking. In Istanbul, a cynical undercover operative receives a frantic call from his estranged younger brother. When Alex Treven, a patent lawyer who has been working for the inventor, is attacked in his apartment, he is convinced he is the target of a conspiracy, and his brother, Ben, is his only hope. Setting aside their differences, Alex and Ben come together to find out who is behind the attacks. They soon learn that forces in America and abroad are involved in a high-stakes struggle to take hold of the technology, and now both of their lives are in danger.

From the Compact Disc edition.
