From the creator of Jurassic Park and ER, a classic techno thriller brimming with high-stakes action and heart-pounding suspense

In an age of political unrest, one man aims to bring the government to its knees—and there’s only one agent who can stop him. 

Wealthy political radical John Wright has taken aim at the US government, believing that only he can make things right. State Department Agent John Graves has been watching Wright for months, studying him, gathering intel, trying to determine his next move before he makes it. 

Now, after hacking a government computer for secret files and stealing a shipment of VZ nerve gas, a binary agent, Wright has gathered everything he needs to unleash mass destruction on a million people—including the US president. As the clock winds down, Wright and Agent Graves play a high-stakes game of cat-and-mouse with the fate of the government and a million innocent people hanging in the balance.
