A cyber breach worth millions. A conspiracy that could take down a city. A detective and an IT expert may be the town's only hope...
Brenda Kittles is excited for her new start as a computer security expert for a prestigious Daytona Beach architectural firm. But her anxiety builds when an explosion and a dead body point to a cyber crime on her watch. Eager to please her new boss Catherine Hainsworth, she shares the evidence with the city's hardest working police captain.
Manny Salinas is just moving on from Catherine when the cyber breach sends him right back to her. Doing his best to put his old flame out of his mind, he and Brenda realize the chess-obsessed hacker may want to play a game with millions of dollars. With the help of his second in command, the captain and the rookie computer expert must track the criminal across Europe to keep Catherine's company alive.
Can Brenda and Manny save the firm from collapse or will the devious cyber thief send Daytona Beach reeling?
