Government watchdogs have failed to detect a Stanford-trained scientist performing illegal brain research on humans. Bernardo Bernhardt believes he's being guided by higher forces to subtly redirect the world's political and economic future. Having coerced CIA operatives into his scheme, he's perfected a computer system to broadcast a fine-tuned spray of microwave frequencies that alter a targeted person's thoughts and emotions - in whatever direction Bernardo chooses.Google's gotten wind of this tech breakthrough and sent out a team to obtain the IP and shut Bernardo down. Meanwhile our hero Jack Hadley stumbles upon the theft of an ancient Mayan phallic statue; the thief happens to be Mahalena Bernhardt, Bernardo's twin sister who's struggling to stop her brother from unleashing his terrorist technology on world leaders. Driven to revenge his father's recent murder, Jack teams with Mahalena as their paths converge - at Bernardo's highland Guatemala lab where a shocking climax awaits the duo. Unleashing seemingly-unstoppable white-collar bad guys on the world, this innovative thriller delivers a provocative, insightful, sexy and prophetic preview of our imminent future.
