Cayce Pollard is an expensive, spookily intuitive market-research
consultant. In London on a job, she is offered a secret assignment: to
investigate some intriguing snippets of video that have been appearing
on the Internet. An entire subculture of people is obsessed with these
bits of footage, and anybody who can create that kind of brand loyalty
would be a gold mine for Cayce’s client. But when her borrowed apartment
is burgled and her computer hacked, she realizes there’s more to this
project than she had expected.
But Cayce is her father’s
daughter, and the danger makes her stubborn. Win Pollard, ex-security
expert, probably ex-CIA, took a taxi in the direction of the World Trade
Center on September 11 one year ago, and is presumed dead. Win taught
Cayce a bit about the way agents work. She is still numb at his loss,
and, as much for him as for any other reason, she refuses to give up
this newly weird job, which will take her to Tokyo and on to Russia.
With help and betrayal from equally unlikely quarters, Cayce will follow
the trail of the mysterious film to its source, and in the process will
learn something about her father’s life and death. Download and start listening now!
