The year: 2027. The place: everywhere.
Ghostly lights out on the marsh have been the subject of tales and rumours for as long as anyone can remember but the reality is far more frightening than any ghost story. Something is going wrong at the nearby energy company and they are trying to keep it a secret. Somebody needs to be told. But Aynsley needs help to do it. The Web keeps him in touch with a network of friends across the world and it might just offer him a way in past the company security to find out exactly what's going on.
But the Web works both ways. If Aynsley can get to the company then the company can get to him. And the company has a way of dealing with intruders.
