Computer wizard Heidi Hoffman is a virtuoso with technology, but interfacing with humans is another matter. After the dot-com crash, Heidi reboots her career in the stuffy world of banking, where sucking-up is more valued than smarts.
While fixing a network problem, Heidi intercepts a chilling e-mail from fellow employee, Alicia. The message: a warning to her conspirator that she'd been exposed. With the techie's sense of discretion, Heidi ignores what she sees.
Until Alicia turns up dead.
What was Alicia involved in? Embezzling? An illicit affair? Or something much worse? A terrible night in Heidi's past taught her the price of doing nothing.
Heidi finds herself caught between the Russian mob and the FBI. Putting herself out as bait, Heidi risks everything to flush out the killer and shatter a conspiracy far larger than she had ever imagined. Soon Heidi will learn the terrifying secret of Lex Talionis, the mortal law of retribution.
