As specialist FBI field agents rush all over the Crescent City to save the next victims, SAS James Colt searches wildly for an IT security analyst known only by a code. As a Security Expert, Sam specializes in network analysis but murdered co-workers mark her by a hidden node address. When the killer gets wind of closing net around him, SAS Colt’s path is marked for detonation.

His timeline puts Samantha Holmes into the I.T. muddle with the FBI neck-deep in a nationwide killing spree. With fourteen days to save her family and friends, Sam must decrypt the mysterious malware before it reopens her past at the Boston ’s U.S. Marshal’s Office, which she traded for the sanctuary and beauty of her homeland, New Orleans, Louisiana, and destroys her future.

Certain Samantha can track him, Agent Colt accompanies her on an international thrillride to catch a killer. In Rio deJaneiro, paradise proves all is not smooth sailing. Drawn mysteriously into the manhunt for a serial monster, Sam slides into a harrowing FBI investigation. She must stop the serial spree, as her daughter, Clare, becomes his next target.

With colleagues eager to submarine her and two killers ready to drown her, Sam must dive into a maelstrom of politics and law enforcement to contract a deadly IT trade the FBI cannot authorize. Sam’s life hangs by a delusional serial killers’ demigod vengeance. She is left navigating the stormy waters of betrayal, greed, and murder as cold as the deep blue sea.

As a colleague stands wrongly accused & her daughter kidnapped, Samantha's only hope is to prove coworkers' innocence & find the real murderer. Only she holds the keys to the killer’s past as the bureau runs out of time & law enforcement is tied to a secret world of mafia & high finance pursuit. Against all odds, she must ID the killer’s signature. Beyond firewalls, however, social nets and other dangers await. ( )
