The founder of virtual reality, Dr. Benjamin Trace, has lost a legal battle to secure a patent on the most powerful worldwide communications chip ever invented. Touted as the one operating system to control all others, in the wrong hands the "Chiron Chip" has the potential to dominate a society dependent on computers. When corporate tycoon and virtual reality entrepreneur Jonathan Walker takes over development of the Chiron Chip, he turns to computer genius Jobe to complete construction of the omnipotent semiconductor. But as Jobe moves closer to finishing the task, he develops his own nefarious agenda--to seize control of Walker's network, and ultimately reign over the world's computers. Only one man can stop him before he carries out his diabolical scheme. Trace joins forces with a teenage computer hacker and Walker's chief scientist to foil the ruthless madman while dodging his dangerous and deadly wrath.
