When Matt McCormick, a promising intern architect, is driven by personal tragedy and professional frustration to eavesdrop on a secret meeting of his profession's powerbrokers, a web of corruption, deceit and post-9-11 geopolitics forever changes his life.
After McCormick's old friend, colleague and kindred spirit commits suicide, he embarks on a dangerous and suspenseful odyssey to expose his profession's widespread regulatory corruption. In doing so, he taps into a far deeper and more powerful vein of racketeering than imagined. It's all laid bare in this 111,000 word thriller: rigged professional examinations, negligent homicide, espionage, Washington influence peddling, Patriot Act abuse and assassinations.
