America has been placed on trial by the Friends of the Planet a powerful, but secret organization, and found guilty of waste and degradation of the planet's resources. They will use their orbiting satellites to send down a deadly EM frequency, which will go through the Wi-Fi towers, killing the consumers residing in wired cities, leaving the farmers and ranchers to feed the rest of the planet. The Antagonist is a diabolical, brilliant Bavarian Prince for whom death of his enemies is t nearly eugh. But is it all madness when the elimination of three hundred million people might save seven billion. The plot is as much a war of words and wit as a battle of weapons. It is a race against time, as Paul Decker - along with is ex-wife, an east European hacker and Chechen fighters - chase Prince Hansel through Europe but remain one step behind to the very end.
