Summary (From the publisher):

Fritz Tolm has risen to the top of a vast cartel of banking, industrial, and media interests—the most visible and powerful position in all of Germany. But with the glow of fame come fear, loneliness, and an awful vulnerability. Threats to his life from the shadowy leftist underground increase...and so do the tangles of the all-pervasive "safety net" of protection and surveillance. Trapped in a house they cannot leave, Tolm and his family can only wait to see when and in what form terror will overtake them.
