Alex loves Nika. Yet a few years out of college, his patience worn from her disses, he chooses to help her climb the corporate ladder just one final time. Together they discover an unworldly mystery, and as they dig in to solve it, accidents begin. Heeding the warnings from Alex's friend Toby, they barely escape an assassin's blade. Yet even the CIA is suspicious of their motives, so they must prove their innocence before starting the real research into the enigma. What they expose is an unbelievable, decades-old super weapon premeditated for a war long over, now hurtling down at 40,000 miles an hour from deep space. Protected now, the three friends battle bureaucratic powers to negate the nuclear option and instead construct the most effective counter-weapon, software. While the world contemplates it's end, they steer the killer asteroid clear, or so the three believe until a devious feint is uncovered and the real assassin surfaces. Now they struggle to stay alive and save their old enemy from the catastrophe he wants to inflict upon them.
