Suddenly Ranjit--together with his wife, Myra de Soyza, an expert in artificial intelligence, and their burgeoning family--finds himself swept up in world-shaking events, his genius for abstract mathematical thought put to uses that are both concrete and potentially deadly.

Of course, Knefhausen realized his plan wasn't exactly ethical. But then, he knew the ends often justify the means. And Knefhausen's plan worked better then even he had ever hoped!
