Once the leader of an elite team of cyber-crime investigators, Hunter Lambert was among the FBI's best and brightest-until unspeakable tragedy left her career and life in ruins. Now she works as a private security consultant, hiring her skills out to the highest bidder while seeking out clues in secret to expose the conspiracy that led to her downfall. After a high-profile assignment goes sideways with deadly consequences, Hunter is approached by a shadowy figure with an intriguing offer: Find out who's trying to kill him, and he'll use his vast resources to help her get justice once and for all. The job won't be easy, though. That's because the client is Brad Zorne-a Silicon Valley billionaire with a list of enemies both long and powerful. Making matters even more dangerous, Zorne isn't just running for his life. He's also running for President of the United States. Praise for Marc D.

A winning blend of crime-noel motifs and computer technology."
