Why would anyone take a shot at Peter Spellman?
Flash back to 1982, the year of the invasion of computers into every American consumer’s life. Time magazine names the computer its first inanimate object as “Man of the Year”. The Disney entertainment conglomerate releases Tron as the first feature-length computer-animated film.
Spellman is computer-savvy, but not geekish by appearance. He lives in an affluent suburb of Boston. He’s ordinary, in most respects, except that he’s in charge of cyber-security for a small software company that has just landed a vitally- important government contract—one that calls for the development of a new weapon against the growing plague of international terrorism.
Or, maybe there’s another motive for somebody to kill Peter Spellman. His wife, Diane, is bright and beautiful. She meets a handsome stranger who says he’s in town to do business with Peter’s company. He sweeps her off her feet and, unbeknownst to Peter, a passionate affair ensues. What does this stranger really want? Is he in love with Diane, or does he see her as an avenue to the company’s high-priced technological secrets?
Peter’s secure life turns into a topsy-turvy world of death threats and paranoia, of delusion and cold-steel reality. Is there a way out?
Peter Spellman’s answer is the strangest, most bizarre secret of all!
