A cruise ship loses power in the North Atlantic. A satellite launches in the
South Pacific. Professor Malcolm Clare—celebrated aviator, entrepreneur, and
aerospace engineer—disappears from Stanford University and wakes up
aboard an unknown jet, minutes before the aircraft plunges into the high seas.
An extortionist code-named “Viking” has seized control of a private warfare
technology, pitting a U.S. defense corporation against terrorist conspirators in a
bidding war. His leverage: a threat to destroy the luxury liner and its 3,000 passengers.
Stanford doctoral student Austin Hardy, probing the disappearance of his
professor, seeks out Malcolm Clare’s daughter Victoria, an icy brunette with a
secret that sweeps them to Saint Petersburg. Helped by a team of graduates
on campus, they must devise Trojan horses, outfox an assassin, escape murder
in Bruges, and sidestep treachery in order to unravel Viking’s scheme. Failure
would ensure economic Armageddon in the United States.
