On the morning of 9/11 Brenda Grant and Daniel Henderson are leaving the coffee shop where they meet before work just as an airplane hits the first tower. They witness what seems to be a terrible accident and fear for their co-workers who work on one of the floors above where the plane just hit in "Foolproof." As Brenda calls her boss/boyfriend to ask what is going on, he tells her the people on their floor are trapped and cannot go down because of the fire, so they're going up the steps to try to get away. That's the last Brenda and Daniel hear from anyone in the towers. They are there to witness the other airplane, as well as both towers falling and the terrible scenes that comprised that tragedy, knowing friends and loved ones were inside the buildings. Motivated by the terrorist attack, as well as money left by the company's owners to the few survivors who were not at work when the attack happened, Daniel and Brenda start their own software security firm, DB Security Consultants. Both exceptional code writers, Daniel and Brenda specialize in helping companies maintain their security, as well as find new ways to make their programs more secure. When a National Security Association agent asks them to sign on to make sure a vote tallying system is secure, Daniel and Brenda disagree whether to take on a government agency or not. Daniel doesn't like getting involved in politics, Brenda sees the dollar signs that will allow them to hire more employees. They do end up taking the job. Brenda ends up dating the NSA agent and getting much more involved than she ever planned on. Along the course of the investigation DB is running, Brenda comes across the name of a woman she went to college with. This woman recently committed suicide, and Brenda wonders why she would have done that. The woman was the original script writer of the program DB is working on for the NSA. Combine this storyline, which sends Daniel on a James Bond-type mission across three continents, along with a crooked and evil American president, and you have a pretty decent political thriller. Daniel's time on the run in the middle of this book is extremely unbelievable, but fun to read nonetheless. I'm not sure if it chalks up to three authors for this book, but the storyline is not as seamless as it could be, and Daniel and Brenda both seem to be human superheroes. Far-fetched as it is, I still found this story enjoyable.

During the 9/11 assaults on the Twin Towers, Brenda Grant and Daniel Henderson, who worked in the World Trade Center, were in the Brew-Ha-Ha coffee shop. Their contemporaries at a software firm including Brenda's fiancé Jeremy die in the terrorist attack. As the 2008 presidential election winds down, in Manhattan someone pushes thirtyish computer engineer Sarah Swettenham into traffic. Swettenham was to meet with Grant who along with Henderson opened up AllTech, a software security firm. When Grant learns Swettenham's computers are missing, she concludes an assailant deliberately killed her and stole her computers. National Security Agency's Allen Cooper already hired them to look into polling machine fraud; now their two inquiries converge in Cairo and DC. This is an exciting over the top of the Washington Monument, the Pyramids and football nation as the conspiracy tied to elections never quite gets grounded. Still this is a fun tale that uses real American election dirty tactics and fraud (thankfully ignoring the phony issue of an individual at the poll voting as someone else) committed by both parties as the base for an enjoyable steal the presidential election conspiracy thriller.
