Operating on American soil but controlled from Moscow, the Russian mob has inserted its agents into the highest levels of the U.S. government and assembled a criminal network of shady doctors and corrupt U.S. officials in a massive conspiracy to steal billions of medical care dollars by preying on unsuspecting patients who are left dead or maimed. When the insidious scheme ravages his own family, young cybersleuth Will Manningham is recruited by the F.B.I. to fight the Russians in a deadly struggle that pits his brain and supercomputer against the international crime ring.
