Former hacker and thief, Tracy Whitney, thought she had left every element of her past behind her when she settled on a ranch in colorado. When one of the leaders of an anonymous new terror group turns violent and shocks the world, it’s Tracy’s name that is dropped. Not knowing anything about the young and disenfranchised Group 99, Tracy is just as shocked as the rest of the world when they escalate from cyber attacks on the wealthy and corrupt to brutal murder. The CIA, FBI and MI6 all want to put this to bed as quickly and quietly as possible. They request that Tracy Whitney help track them down but she refuses to leave her son. When he dies tragically after a mysterious car accident, Tracy has nothing left to lose and throws herself back into her old life, using former contacts and traveling across Europe in search of answers – both trying to stop Group 99 and solve her son’s death.
