One man has a daring plan to rescue them.
One problem: Who will rescue him?
Alek Grey makes a living attacking network firewalls to test their security. When he is called in after one of his programs is used to infiltrate a digital "think tank" called Cyberdrome, he learns that his own father has become trapped in neural interface with the system, unable to be removed without risk of brain damage.
When an attempted rescue mission goes horribly wrong, trapping his ex-fiancée as well, he guesses that these events may have been triggered by the emergence of a smarter-than-human intelligence inside Cyberdrome, possibly giving rise to the long-feared, "Technological Singularity." Alek knows of only one way to rescue the people he loves, but will he risk all of humanity to save them?
