The Ultimate mind game, leading through a maze of espionage, corruption and terror.
Donald Belpatri must unlock the secret sins of his past. His beautiful young lover has been kidnapped, and only by journeying back through the mists of memory and into waking nightmare can he save her. He will have to rediscover the extraordinary and dangerous power he possesses... the power to cross over the interface between mind and computer.
Years ago, the Angra Energy Corporation exploited Belpatri, using his powers to satisfy their greed. Now, Angra Energy wants him back, and they'll hold his woman hostage until they have their man.

All the elemental forces of body and mind clash as Belpatri wages war on two fronts – facing the violence of Angra's merciless hitmen and the shattering, unknown impulses of the computer's dark infinities.
