Your life is in danger. Who do you turn to for help?

Ryan Tate is running for his life after discovering illegal med-tech experiments by his billionaire boss Alexander Tate. Ryan’s network of fellow Obama Administration alums steps up to help, including immunologist and Krav Maga martial arts expert Tracy Hill and tech wizard Hassan Dhillon. Defense attorney Gabi Rodriquez will be a harder sell as she’s still smarting over her bitter breakup with Ryan.

This “League of Extraordinary Wonks” soon discovers there’s more at stake. The advanced, unauthorized tech Tate is about to deploy—a topical patch wirelessly connecting the patient’s neural pathways—will likely be used to give the narcissistic billionaire unthinkable power. The clock is ticking. These Obama veterans must work as one not just to save Ryan's life but humanity itself.

From Patrick Ross' novel in progress.
