Description
Experimental physicist Ted Sandstrom has invented a means to generate and store vasts amounts of power with a small quantum energy device. This cutting-edge technology promises to spark the birth of a new industry or, if placed in the wrong hands, devastate entire segments of the world economy. Nolan Kilkenny takes on the job of transferring Sandstrom's research into the industrialized world. Victor Orlov, the most powerful and deadly oligarch in Russia, learns of the device and sends his own private army to kill Sandstrom and steal the quantum technology. The stakes are raised even higher when Kilkenny and Orlov each discover that Johann Wolff, a German scientist missing since 1948, may hold the key not only to understanding the underlying science of Sandstrom's invention, but to unraveling many of the universe's best held secrets. As both sides race to lay claim to this technological frontier, Orlov kidnaps Kilkenny's girlfriend. Aided by an elite team of specialists, Kilkenny will stop at nothing to save the love of his life, bring Orlov down, and put an end to the Russian's plans for a global economic empire.
