Jo Michaels breaks computers for a living. She works in a small room and doesn't go out in the field. But when her oldest friend, Alex Foster, calls in a favor, she doesn’t hesitate to get on the first flight to head out to help. Dave Martelli has been exiled in Mexico and has had more than enough of the underbelly of the world. His whole world is fast cars, hot women, quarter mile races. His biggest flaw is that he keeps doing the right thing in a business built on wrong. When Alex tells him that he can get him cleared and back home, he agrees with reservations. All he has to do is infiltrate a ring of smugglers using the Mexican illegal racing circuit and break it wide open. But the head of the Mexico City cartel and a serial killing international spy are equally determined to preserve their empire, no matter who it means killing—including Jo and Dave.
