Billions of dollars are transferred electronically every day by the computer system that coordinates New York's money markets. When millions start disappearing, a hushed search begins to avert international financial panic. There's also a search underway in London for a British journalist who has vanished, and these mysteries soon become intertwined. Readers must suspend their disbelief long enough to get past the opening chapter, which allows a computer genius in London to penetrate the New York master machines multiple defenses. There's no explanation; he just watches a device he built crack the code. Once that's out of the way, the story proceeds as a captivating investigative thriller with some clever plot twists. A well-written first novel.
