Robert Davies, Web developer. Daryl Simon, tech support. Michele Isbert, failing novelist. Kevin Horton, marketing assistant. They were putting in their time, waiting to get rich from the stock they owned in nTropics.com. But one autumn day, they found themselves out of work, part of the new CEO's new plans for the company. The same new CEO who personally bought a gold bar at auction and put it on the company's Web site as a symbol for the company's prosperity. Or maybe just his own vanity. You know where this is going, right? Stealing that gold bar is the principled thing to do, but only if they can do it the right way, without too much risk to themselves. Con games, breaking and entering, and a host of other crimes-they're just like live action hacking, right?
