THE QUBE UNLOCKS THE SECRETS OF NATURE. SOME WILL RISK WAR TO STEAL IT.
Silicon Valley pharmaceuticals CEO Peter Struve has spent seven years and eleven billion dollars to turn the brilliant Emily Dura’s secret dream into reality.
They have created the QUBE: a new kind of computer that can solve the hardest problems of science, medicine, molecular design—and much more. It could usher in a new age of prosperity for humankind, and upend the existing world order in the process.
Unfortunately, Peter’s secret was not nearly as secret as he had hoped.
CTO Aidan O'Keefe has his own plans for Emily's invention. His attempt to seize control of StruvePharma leads to tragedy.
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 bitter but equally brilliant ex-husband — the only one alive who can unravel the final mysteries of the QUBE and propel science 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 GAIN THE POWER TO SAVE HUMANITY—OR DESTROY IT.
