As the pieces of a Texas-sized conspiracy collide, an unwilling hero tries to save the Republic–and his life.
A sniper team takes aim at a gubernatorial candidate. A political aide is kidnapped and interrogated about the encrypted iPods he’s carried around the globe. A research scientist on the verge of an earth-shaking breakthrough disappears from his secretly funded university lab. All three are connected in a battle over something so small it takes a high-powered microscope to see it. As the pieces of a Texas-sized conspiracy collide, can Jackson Quick succeed in saving the Republic–and his own life? Or will those trying to silence him prove too powerful in a world where there is no allegiance.
