(From the publisher):
Seeking to reestablish herself after a professional debacle, Katherine Murkowitz joins a small, eccentric electronics firm. The firm's sale to a Chinese company begins a whirlwind of layered deceptions, international intrigue, and subtle romance, as the potentially world-saving discovery of Keith Sutter, the firm's founder, becomes the focus of two great nations. Preparing to stun the world with thier upcoming independence from fossil fuels and subsequent economic dominance, the Chinese secretly produce Sutter's solar-electric cells in an underground facility nestled in the Qinling Mountains. Their excess purchases of petroleum as a buffer against an international reaction drive up world energy prices, capturing the attention of young Jim Newberry at the CIA. The American response, a Special Forces operation to deny the Chinese this technology, ensnares unwitting peole and other nations to earth-shanking effect.
The revelations continue in Emergence.
