Witcomb Briar works for the federal government of the United States in charge of information security. So secret is his position that few know of its existence, so powerful that he oversees the President. The White House, Congress, Supreme Court and their assistants are surveilled by Wit-as he's generally known-twenty-four seven. When he discovers something more than illegal in progress with a long list of accomplices, he suddenly has no one to turn to. Revealing what he knows to the press will throw the government into chaos. Not revealing what he knows will create a totalitarian state. Where's the win in a no-win situation?
