THE ROAD TO KNOWLEDGE WILL LEAD TO WAR.
Silicon Valley CEO Peter Struve spent seven years and eleven billion dollars to turn the brilliant Emily Dura’s secret dream into reality.
Now they have the QUBE: a quantum computer millions of times more powerful than all the other computers on Earth. It can solve the hardest problems of science. Design new materials with near-magical properties. Crack any code in microseconds. It could usher in a new age of prosperity for humankind, and upend the existing world order in the process.
But Peter’s secret wasn’t as secret as he had hoped.
Days after his first, successful demo to an investor, someone tries to kidnap Emily and steal the QUBE, with disastrous results.
FBI agent Laurel Wynn is sent to investigate. Together with SP’s chief of security, former Force Recon Marine John Shea, she uncovers a trail of spies and traitors that leads overseas, to powerful enemies with terrifying resources.
And in the meantime, Peter must recruit the one person in all the world who has the least reason to trust him: Jack Dura, Emily's estranged, bitter, and equally brilliant ex-husband — the only one who can solve the final mysteries of the QUBE and propel the world into a radical new future.
What unfolds is an epic tale of science, spies, and soldiers as the battle to control this technology spins out of control, with world-shaking consequences.
THE VICTOR WILL HAVE THE POWER TO SAVE HUMANITY—OR DESTROY IT.
